b) is correct. This is why the png reference image shows what it looks
like when b) happens.

An issue with testing this sort of functionality is that the tests are
intended to be separate from the test harness. The tests can be run
standalone (eg, loading the svg files one by one into a viewer), or
using an svg harness, or using an html object harness, or an html
embed harness. other custom harnesses (eg a script based one, a
harness that shows an extra image for regression testing, whatever)
are possible.

This test could be made clearer, for the html object harness, at the
expense of making it specific to that harness. we tried to avoid that.
Can you suggest improved wording that would improve this case while
also allowing for harnesses where the svg  was tested standalone?

Thanks, now fixed in cvs.
