Description Mark Whitis 2007-01-04 05:23:07 UTC
I downloaded two icons:

I inserted them into an XHTML document (.html extension) in this fashion:
<OBJECT data="bb_dvd_.svg" type="image/svg+xml" width="64" height="64"
style="float: right">
   DVD image

When I displayed them in iceweasel/firefox, the images did not rescale when I
edited the width and the height.   I even tried changing width and height inside
the SVG document to "100%".

I think the images should be either converted into a rescalable form or the FAQ
should at least tell you how to do so.   After all, these are supposed to be
SCALABLE Vector Graphics.

Indeed, SVG files are scalable, the bug is in Mozilla/Iceweasel not in our
images. You can see the images scalling well on applications like Inkscape or
Adobe Illustrator. Gecko still sucks at displaying SVG.

I agree it would be useful to have an item on the FAQ about embedding in HTML,
so if anyone is knowledgeable in this matter, please add it, but the scalling
problem is really a bug/misfeature in Mozilla.
