Dear Council and Editors,
A couple of comments about the image encoding document by Conal and Dot that I wanted to send in.
>1. tei:graphic/@scale and svg:image/@preserveAspectRatio >(http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/coords.html#preserveAspectRatio) >are, I believe, similar, but they are Greek to me. I need >help here.
svg:image/@preserveAspectRatio is different from tei:graphic/@scale
if you set preserveAspectRatio to be false in SVG then the width and height can be scaled independently
tei:graphic/@scale does not allow that, this scale would apply equally in both the X and Y direction.
>2. svg:image lacks @mimeType, but is it necessary?
I would think so specially if someone wants to write a tool that displays the document/image outside the SVG environment and considering svg:image can refer to other svg files (right?)
IMHO tei:graphic is redundant, but I would let learned in the group come to a judgement.
It is past the due date but I had read the P5 14.9 and had no concerns at that time.
