To be fair, there's nothing forbidding a browser from recognizing the public id used in the doctype and mapping that to a local copyy of the DTD, or even better to internal application knowledge of that DTD which may be needed (such as entity definitions). A lot of SVG 1.1 implementations do that (for some defaulted attributes, not for entities, but it's all the same) with no impact whatsoever on performance. (And before anyone screams, that behaviour is deprecated in SVG 1.2, where no DTD will even be available.) There are only so many things one can be in denial of :) -- Robin Berjon Senior Research Scientist Expway, http://expway.com/
