RE: [SVGMobile12] SVGT12-207: <textArea> redundant with HTML

I leave it as an exercise to you to find Ian's email where he proposed the addition of a 'width' attribute to the svg:text element. I will not respond further on this question. We already have given last call responses on SVG-t 1.2's simple text wrapping in previous emails. You can look those up yourself, also.
