Re: SVGt 1.2 Tests: coords-coord-02-t uses unit specifiers on purpose?

Hi Kalle,

This is an official response from the SVG Working Group.

Thank you for highlighting this problem in the SVG Tiny 1.2 Test Suite.

The SVG Working Group have investigated the tests coords-coord-02-t and 
coords-coord-01-t and we have found that the test coords-coord-02-t is 
not applicable to SVG Tiny 1.2. The test was originally imported from 
SVG Full 1.1 and tests the unit specifiers 'px' for x, y, width, height 
on graphical objects.

If we removed the unit specifier 'px' from coords-coord-02-t then it 
would be a redundant test because coords-coord-01-t already covers the 
case. As a result, coords-coord-02-t has been removed from the test 
suite. This change will appear in the next release of the SVG Tiny 1.2 
Test Suite.

Additionally, we have made a note to create a test case to test option 
units specified on an 'svg' element.

Please let the Working Group know if you have any further comments or 
feedback regarding this test case.

Kind Regards,

Anthony Grasso
