Re: SVG12: hyperlink-based timing in 14.3.2

Dear Bjoern,


Thank you very much for your comment at, which is

at the bottom of this email. 


This email is the official Last Call response to your comment.


The table in section 14.3.2 mentions that the <a> element can be the
target of hyperlink timing. A link to section
erlinksAndTiming of the SMIL spec 

is also provided.


In the animation chapter of the draft spec, 

The following sentence can be found:


"Except for any SVG-specific rules explicitly mentioned in this
specification, the normative definition for SVG's animation 

elements and attributes are the SMIL 2.0 Animation Modules
<> ."


As SVG does not make any specific rules regarding hyperlink timing,
there is no need for a proper definition of this feature in

the draft.


All the best,
