Thanks for the comment, I have changed the note in styling.html and put:

<p>Note: Animation of presentation attributes and animation of 
properties are related, see the <a 
class="attr-value">attributeType</span></a> attribute definition for 
more information.</p>

And added the following text in the attributeType attribute definition:

<p>Animation of presentation attributes is equivalent to animating the 
corresponding property.
         Thus, for <a 
href="styling.html#SVGStylingProperties">properties listed in SVG Tiny 
1.2</a>, the same effect
         occurs from animating the presentation attribute with <a 
class="attr-value">attributeType="XML"</span></a> as occurs
     with animating the corresponding property with <a 

Please reply to this mail within two weeks if the change does not 
address your concerns.
