Hi,

Hopefully the maintainer of the document “An SVG Primer for Today's Browsers” is on this list. I sent to the mailing list in the document itself, <public-svg-ig@w3.org<mailto:public-svg-ig@w3.org> >, but received an automessage back that it’s no longer active and suggesting this one.

Shortly after this point in the document:

http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/IG/resources/svgprimer.html#graphics31

in the example for a text path, which has this code:

<defs>

<path id="curve" d="M 10 100 C 200 30 300 250 350 50"
stroke="black" fill="none" stroke-width="5" />

</defs>

<text id="T" style="font-family:ariel;font-size:16">

<textPath xlink:href="curve">Hello, here is some text lying along a bezier curve.</textPath>

</text>

the attribute xlink:href="curve" should instead be xlink:href="#curve".

Thanks,
