Hi, SVG-

I've gone into the source of the most recent HTML5 draft (off the WHATWG 
site) and uncommented all the SVG references.  Some of them are pretty 
trivial, so they aren't worth working into our proposal.

I've stripped the document down to a manageable size, removing parts 
that I was pretty sure we wouldn't need to edit.  I left in most of the 
parsing section, just in case we need to change stuff in an unexpected 

For example, though the original draft doesn't say anything about SVG in 
the attribute-parsing section, that is where we would put a reference to 
SVG parsing errors (to be corrected and reported to the error console) 
for unquoted attribute values.

I uploaded two documents, the stripped-down reference version [1], and 
the version I intend for us to edit directly [2].  I've uploaded HTML 
documents rather than put them into the wiki, because I think it will be 
easier to diff and easier to work with the raw markup for our proposed text.
