It was caused by a CVS error in my copy of the 'publish' directory in the SVG WG repository on In cosequence the PNG files, which are binary, were treated as text files and suffered DOD to Unix line ending conversion, which corrupted them.

These were the files which I copied over to the W3C technical reports page to publish the spec.

Unfortunately I didn't notice this corruption and the automated tools check only for broken links, not that the image linked to is itself valid. So this was not noticed at the time. And then I went on vacation.

I'm back today, saw the error report, and I have copied over the uncorrupted images, so all the PNG images in all chapters work correctly now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
