Subject Re: Problems with fonts, and rotation after resizing an SVG
Date Tue, 06 Jun 2006 13:24:59 GMT
Thomas,

Thanks a lot for your answers!

Regarding the rotation, the problem was, that once again I was using a
namespace instead of using null for the rotate transform. So it worked
only when I did not resize the SVG. When I changed it for null it
started working fine.

Thanks for your help!

Carolina
