Description patrick.ausderau 2013-12-09 18:48:54 UTC
In my svg, I have a animateMotion element without a mpath child (exactly as in the specification example; but the validator gives an error:
 end tag for "animateMotion" which is not finished

In the specification (, it says that the animateMotion can have "at most one ‘mpath’ element"; so if I have zero mpath element it has to be correct too.

If I give a mpath child to my animateMotion then the validator gives the "green light".

Sorry, I was not sure if the problem is with "The check CGI script" but there was no "General" category. If the problem is somewhere else, can you plese change the component.
