I agree with this draft finding, but the following example in
section 1 [3] is bogus:

  <html:div xmlns:html="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"
            font-family="serif"
            font-size="18pt">
     <html:p>Some HTML text</html:p>
     <svg:svg xmlns:svg="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
        <svg:g transform="scale(0.5)">
          <svg:text>Some SVG text</svg:text>
          ...
       </svg:g>
     </svg:svg>
  </html:div>

There's no 'font-family' or 'font-size' attributes in XHTML.  Put
it the other way around, i.e. put XHTML inside SVG.  SVG does have
those attributes.

And please never say HTML when you refer to XHTML.
