Anne, on a semi-related topic, can you please help me understand why Opera does not scale the SVG image when loaded via IMG element? Here is a test page:

> For drawImage the pixel size of the SVG is determined as follows:
> 1. The image size parameters passed to drawImage
> 2. The intrinsic size of the SVG image
> 3. 300 x 150
> For createPattern it is as follows:
> 1. The intrinsic size of the SVG image
> 2. 300 x 150
> (It would be nice if createPattern was extended to allow height/width
> arguments as well.)
> The intrinsic size of the SVG image is the specified size with
> percentages resolved against 300 x 150, and sizes depending on the
> font-size resolved against the computed font-size of the SVGSvgElement
> (will be the browser default most of the time).
> The SVG image is always rendered at time 0 for animated images.
> Drawing an SVG image currently marks the canvas context as unsafe so
> toDataURL() and getImageData() throw. We expect to make this story a bit
> nicer at some point.
