Re: getSVGDocument()

Hi Anne,

The working group has discussed this issue further and we resolved to 
reword GetSVGDocument errata item as follows:

"This method must return the Document object of embedded content in an
embedding element, or null if there is no document.

Informative Note: This is a legacy method equivalent to contentDocument, 
and may not always return an SVG Document. The author should check the 
namespaceURI or the root node tag name before using the returned document."

The proposed wording will appear in the next publication of the Errata. 
Please let us know if you have any further comments or feedback 
regarding this errata item. Thanks,

Kind Regards,

Anthony Grasso
