SVG example clippath problem (53.54 KB, application/xml)

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.
