SVG example clippath problem
About 5 years ago I created a program which creates an SVG file like the one I attached to this bug. The file displays fine in Internet Explorer. It use to show fine in Firefox back when I created it.
There are actually multiple problems. If you look at it in both browsers you can see that
- the background does not show up in Firefox like it does in IE.
- The fonts are not being displayed in the specified font.
- The borders don't show up in Firefox either.
I would hope that Firefox doesn't take a backseat to IE in SVG ability.
I don't think the SVG file format has changed that much in the last 5 years. But it is always a possibility.
Did you mean to file this against Firefox (at mozilla.org) instead of cairomm?
I'm sorry if this is in the wrong place. I was under the understanding that cairo provided the SVG support for Firefox. Is that not the case?
I mention Firefox only because that is my testbed and that is the method to reproduce what I am seeing.
Am I making any sense or should I still be talking to the Firefox/mozilla group?
firefox does use cairo, but does not use cairomm (which is a C++ binding for cairo). I would suggest you first start by filing the bug against firefox, and if they determine it's a cairo bug, they can forward it upstream.
