Re: First experience with SVG

Hi Jeremie, I appreciate your reply! I find very interesting the additions 
to SVG 2, hopefully the standard will be finalised soon and we'll see it 
implemented in browsers. :-)

Just a minor clarification:

I understand why margin has to do with flow. Still, 
padding could be irrelevant of flow and implemented as the distance 
between the (x0,y0),(x1,y1) outer rect and the actual shape in it.

E.g. if padding is 1 then the shape should actually be contained in 
(x0+1,y0+1), (x1-1,y1-1).

Finally, about the transform issue, as a first step it would be easy to 
add percentage lengths in functions, e.g. translate(0,100%). Unfortunately 
I'm an SVG newcomer so I can't propose a proper way for starting coords at 
bottom-left (or elsewhere) without inverting text and shapes.
