Re: [svg-developers] Re: SVGt1.2: Text Box


it may be I misunderstood the spec, which in this case I had read...

the example given:

which is simple to understand does not provide anything similar to:
html form: action or method, which aywk do not require script.
  and it is in this sense that I feel the SVGt1.2 spec is not  

It may well be that I have missed some obvious implementation, in  
which case could a testcase please be provided in the specification?

kind regards

There is a way to get text editing capabilities without using
scripting[1]: just add an 'editable' attribute with the value  
'simple' to
any <text> or <textArea> element.

Or, if you wish to see a complete example, it's in the SVGT12 spec
