Subject Adobe SVGViewer doesn't like font-family:sansserif.italic without apos
Date Tue, 14 Aug 2001 16:18:39 GMT
It appeas that Adobe's SVGViewer considers this line to be bad because of the .italic as part
of the font family name:

        <font-face ascent="100.52667" descent="21.970367" units-per-em="100" style="font-family:sansserif.italic;
style:italic; font-weight:normal;" />

Changing to 
 removes the bad CSS error that I reported:
     bad CSS property or descriptor declaration

I noticed something else too. There were three occurrences of sansserif.italic. The later
2 were in text tags:

<text x="227.9677734375" y="254.92665100097656" style="font-size:12; font-family:&apos;sansserif.italic&apos;;

font-style:italic; stroke:none;">

Note that they have the ampersand apostrophes around them. So then I changed the font-face
font-family attribute to 
have the ampersand apostrophe

        <font-face ascent="100.52667" descent="21.970367" units-per-em="100" style="font-family:
&apos;sansserif.italic&apos;; font-style:italic; font-weight:normal;" />

Now SVGViewer no longer generates an error message about this SVG file.

So is it a bug in Batik for the font-face font-family to not put the apos chars around a font
family that has a dot in the 
middle of it?

Oh, and btw, I still can't see the document in the IE plug-in Adobe SVGViewer. It emits no
error. It just shows a white 
blank background.
