Hello, I was wondering, is there was a simple way to calculate the bounding box of an SVG element with respect to its transformations? The getBBox method does not seem to take transformations into account. I'm using the transform attribute because it seems to be the easiest and most elegant way to translate a group of elements. However, I still need to get the bounding box of the group in terms of the viewport coordinate space. If there is not an easy way to get the bounding box of an element with respect to its transform, it seems like there are only two alternatives: 1) to make a newer, smarter getBBox method that does take transforms into account, or 2) to not use translate, instead recursively changing the x,y values of every member of a group. However, neither of these seems like a very pretty solution, so I am somewhat stuck... I would greatly appreciate any guidance anyone can provide. Thanks. Jake
