Appendix Q: Changes


This appendix is informative, not normative.

This appendix summarizes the changes from the previous publication of SVG 1.1 Second Edition.

Q.1 Stylistic changes

A number of stylistic changes have been made to the specification to make it more readable. These include the following:

Q.2 Backports from SVG Tiny 1.2

In some cases, discussion of Last Call comments or of individual testcases revealed that the wording in SVG 1.1 First Edition had been imprecise and that compatible, but better, wording was available in the SVG Tiny 1.2 Recommendation. In several cases, noted below, that wording was backported to SVG 1.1 Second Edition. Additional clarifying examples were also backported from that specification.
