He is on this list, but I'll confess that not a lot of maintaining has been
done recently. I have been keeping a collection of these mistakes as they
are reported and hope to make corrections sometime during the spring
semester.

 

Thanks for reporting it!

 

Cheers

David

Subject: Error in "An SVG Primer for Today's Browsers"

 

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 >, 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no longer active and suggesting this one.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,
