SVG is a graphical format - svg:text element is only a single line of text, so you have to calculate all line breaks, inter-line spaces etc. before generating SVG. (An alternative solution suggested in SVG WD is to wrap all text blocks into an XHTML foreignObject; this would bring us back to the starting point - it is virtually equivalent to producing HTML directly). I think the current level of precision achieved by the stylesheet is quite sufficient for browsing. There's enough space for improvements - e.g. using CSS2 instead of CSS1 in the output HTML. I am not sure if such a precision makes much sense with currently available browsers. Regards, Nikolai Grigoriev RenderX XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
