Description Erik Dahlström 2014-02-21 09:47:10 UTC

The term # SVG layout box refers to the same term in SVG.

This needs to be clarified. 

The stroke-width influenced the box in IE11, but not in the other browsers. TC:

A clip-path did not influence the reported box in any of the implementations, TC:

Markers influenced the reported box in Firefox and IE, but not in Presto or Chrome. Note that IE reports a different box than Firefox, even though the rendering looks the same. TC:

It should be possible to define this term by using the new getBBox method in SVG2: 

Browsers tested: Chrome 34.0.1788.0 dev, Opera 12.16 (Presto), Firefox Nightly 29.0a1 (2014-01-08), IE 11.0.9600.16438.
