    Hello Oliver,

    This is an expected behavior since you have explicitly specified
    font-size in points but measured all other sizes implicitly in user
    units. By default 1 user unit = 1 pixel and as it is stated in our
    documentation we assume that 1px = 1/120in.
    You better use consistent measure units - either everything in points or
    everything in user units.

    Best regards,
    Alexander Peshkov

    OB> Hello,

    OB> it seems that text appearing within an SVG graphic is displayed too big.
    OB> Attached there are two files:
    OB> - box.svg a very simple example
    OB> - box.png a raster image produced with batik

    OB> Both in box.png as well as displayed in IE (using Acrobat's SVG viewer)
    OB> the text fits perfectly into the surrounding box.

    OB> With XEP 3.7 the text is displayed too big, the letters A and G overlap
    OB> the left and right borders resp.

    OB> Is this a bug or again an oversight on my side?
