Description Eric Hopper 2007-10-29 01:39:49 EDT
Description of problem:
SVG images that specify the size in terms of em or ex end up having a width or
height of 0.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Visit the given URL
Actual results:
A blank image

Expected results:
You should see an image depicting a glider from the game of life that's about
the height of 8 lines of text or so and about the same size wide.

Since Microsoft Visio makes extensive use of sizes measured in em or ex when
told to produce an SVG file it would be very good if Firefox handled them properly.
Comment 1 Christopher Aillon 2007-10-30 08:25:40 EDT
This is recently implemented in what will become Firefox 3, but not yet in
Firefox 2.  We'll get this fixed when we update to 3.x
