I've been playing with SVG and Inkscape recently in an attempt to design
a logo. With the image located at , I do not see any text.
However, I see a few blotches of white, the text's colour. This happens
with both libart on mozilla-devel and cairo on mozilla. I'm currently
rebuilding mozilla-devel to use cairo for SVG. is the relevant bug
in BZ. The issue that I'm seeing is quite curious, however, because
neither libart nor cairo render the HTML-embedded images which *should*
work in the page linked to from that bug.

I'm not sure of whether this is my local installation, or something
else. Can anyone confirm?
