AFAIK view isn't implemented in Adobe vsn 3.
Using batik, from first url above,
Is the behaviour compliant?
I.e. circle and ellipse fill the 'screen' ?
 the polygon appears not work as described.

so its not what I expected. I believed it to be a 'highlight' function,
rather than a 'replace' type of function, as perhaps the polygon 
should behave? I.e. somehow highlight visually the identified element.
  Could I use a g wrapper and then use its id value (which is perhaps 
what is used in the polygon example?) in the same manner as using a 
<use xlink:href='#ident' .../> form?

Is that the green polygon?

thanks Chris.
