RE: SVGT 1.2 Tests: <tspan> and line-increment property

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for the reply. It seems that number of issues we are seeing
are due to differences between the public specification and the 
'private' version that was used when developing the tests. This
obviously results in waste of time for both parties.

In one of the replies I have received, it was indicated that the
next release of the test package was targeted for the end of 
February. Would it be possible to release the version of the
against which the tests were written, at the same time? 

Highlighted diffs between the versions would be much appreciated also. 
See for example for a tool to make it
