ISSUE-2287: Consider clarifying empty clipPath behaviour

empty_clippath

Consider clarifying empty clipPath behaviour

State:
CLOSED
Product:
SVG Full 1.1
Raised by:
Erik Dahlström
Opened on:
2009-06-30
Description:
We might want to consider clarifying the behaviour for how empty clipPaths affect what they're applied on. And also how display and visibility affect children of <clipPath> when generating the clippath.

Some cases to consider (all tested by [1]):
a) <clipPath> with no children
b) <clipPath> with children that have display="none"
c) <clipPath> with children that have visibility="hidden"
d) does clip-path="url(#brokenlink)" mean everything is clipped, or nothing is clipped?

Testresults for [1] in order a,b,c,d:
Safari 4: x, y*, x, y
Opera 10: x, x, x, y
Firefox 3.5: x, x, x, x
Batik 1.7: y, y, y, f

x) clips all
y) clips nothing
f) error dialog
*) visibilty=hidden children contribute to clippath
