20:18:29 [ed]
20:18:34 [krit]
Tav: cameron said that html tag inside svg and try to add html inside svg you'' break
20:18:56 [krit]
ChrisL: cameron suggested a lot more chnages
20:19:07 [krit]
ChrisL: he seems to wnat to have a whole new layer
20:19:16 [krit]
Tav: link and meta are not part of svg
20:19:27 [krit]
ChrisL: we had a resolution to add them
20:19:34 [krit]
ChrisL: anyway we should ask peter
20:19:45 [krit]
ChrisL: wecould add it to our svg naemspace
20:19:57 [krit]
ed: html5 might break the parsing algorithm there
20:20:05 [cyril]
zakim, who is here?
20:20:05 [Zakim]
On the phone I see krit, cyril, Tav, ed, ChrisL
20:20:56 [krit]
ChrisL: it seems to be a clear resolution that al changes might break html5 parsing. for those test we need something different
20:21:12 [ed]
s/html5 might break the parsing algorithm there/html5's parsing algorithm would break out into html mode if we didn't parent the link and meta elements inside a foreignobject/
20:21:41 [krit]
Tav: cameron suggestions is a bit simplper
20:21:46 [krit]
ChrisL: i didn't like it
20:22:22 [ChrisL]
I think he has oversimplified and it will loose functionality
20:22:35 [krit]
Tav: he is not removing anything
20:22:45 [krit]
Tav: he just implementes in another way
20:23:01 [krit]
Tav: he is just not put html5 into ahead
20:23:02 [krit]
20:23:21 [krit]
Tav: th eproblem with meta tag.
20:23:33 [krit]
Tav: he still has a data tag
20:24:21 [krit]
Tachif an html5 parser finds a link in a svg tag
20:24:27 [krit]
ChrisL: what happens?
20:24:39 [krit]
Tav: I don't know
20:25:02 [krit]
ChrisL: html parser don't care about the tags at all
20:26:07 [cabanier95]

cabanier has joined #svg
20:27:19 [krit]
ChrisL: we had the test criteria … where did it went?
20:27:38 [krit]
Tav: the test harness has to be modified to do that
20:27:46 [krit]
ChrisL: is that in the head and a meta
20:28:11 [krit]
ChrisL: simplicity is goood
20:28:13 [krit]
20:28:39 [krit]
Tav: link to the different parts of the spec
20:28:47 [krit]
Tav: and which parts it needs to pass
20:28:50 [Tav]
20:29:16 [krit]
Tav: test assertions:
20:29:29 [krit]
ChrisL: it is all in the content attribute
20:29:35 [krit]
ChrisL: no markup at all
20:29:56 [krit]
Tav: above in the spec links, there is a link that tells you what part of the spec gets tested
20:30:01 [krit]
ChrisL: thats fine
20:30:21 [cyril] seems broken
20:30:51 [ed]
the tags that break out of "foreign" mode (aka SVG in html): (link is not among those)
20:31:09 [krit]
ChrisL: ok
20:31:40 [krit]
ed: meta does break out
20:31:45 [krit]
Tav: link is ok
20:31:49 [krit]
ed: yes
20:31:59 [krit]
Tav: you still need sth for the tags
20:32:06 [krit]
Tav: description is ok
20:32:32 [krit]
ed: could we use svg metadata element?
20:33:04 [krit]
20:33:14 [krit]
ed: just sth to put test meta data on
20:33:17 [krit]
ed: should be fine
20:33:24 [krit]
ChrisL: would be fine than
20:33:32 [krit]
ChrisL: peter should know what we want to do
20:34:00 [krit]
ed: metadata should replace meta eleemnt
20:34:20 [krit]
ed: link lists all the tags that break out
20:34:39 [krit]
ed: link element would get unknown svg element
20:34:49 [krit]
ed: needs verification
20:35:37 [krit]
ChrisL: so no other namespace, no head
20:35:42 [krit]
ChrisL: just metadata?
