I’ve hit a behaviour in Firefox that I’d like clarified in the spec. as
to how it should be behave. IE and Presto (rip Opera) behave as I would

When the user sets Page Style - None (which for all intents and purposes
to the end user is a CSS toggle), SVG documents lose their attribute-set
styling. This isn’t just style="" attributes as one could expect, but
fill="", stroke="" etc. This negatively effects masks, fill-rules etc.

Is the wording in
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/styling.html#UsingPresentationAttributes on
‘User agents that do not support CSS must ignore any CSS style rules
defined in CSS style sheets and ‘style’ attributes.’ meant to extend
further into any document-defined styles via attributes, or is this
Firefox behaving not as intended?

For further reference, the bug I have open.
