Description Dirk Schulze 2012-05-30 04:00:17 UTC
'The Transform Rendering Model'  has a paragraph about layout with the term "HTML namespace" a comment on this paragraphs demands a better naming.
Comment 1 Simon Fraser 2012-06-06 15:19:12 UTC
We need a phrase that covers "CSS applied to HTML/XHTML/XML". Or maybe the actual issue is SVG vs. non-SVG?
Comment 2 Dirk Schulze 2012-06-07 01:40:12 UTC
I am not sure if there is an issue at all. Elements don't flow in SVG in general. Am I wrong? Therefore transforms of course don't affect the flow of elements for SVG. It would just be specifying something that is obvious. I am fine if we remove the constraint.
Comment 3 Simon Fraser 2012-10-18 22:43:28 UTC
Use "elements whose layout is governed by the CSS box model". Maybe add a note to say that at present this is everything that is not SVG.
Comment 4 Edward O'Connor 2012-10-18 23:28:04 UTC
Fixed in ae9a92982b9e.
Comment 5 Dirk Schulze 2012-10-19 15:25:04 UTC
We still have two places where we use "In the HTML namespace" in "The Transform Rendering Model".
Comment 6 Dirk Schulze 2012-10-19 15:32:03 UTC
Removed all usages after changeset 604592536b17.
