Description Henri Sivonen 2009-09-07 09:28:40 UTC
Currently, SVG 1.1 makes all children of SVG <metadata> that HTML5 makes possible in text/html non-conforming.

The spec could score some metadata theory points by treating <metadata> the same way <title> is treated in SVG foreign content. Then {}meta could be used as a child of {}metadata.
Comment 1 Henri Sivonen 2009-09-07 09:29:50 UTC
Actually, I take that back. Doing this would introduce more error possibilities when the /> syntax is used in copy-pasted RDF/XML.
