Re: [xep-support] Two up continuous

Hi All,

I would certainly add my vote to the svg enhancements with textPath
being highest on the list and filter effects (esp. for drop-shadows)
high up there as well. I'd also add my vote to any more integrated
means of producing pdf forms. Additionally, I'd like to see background
scale-to-fit (esp. for svg files and other vector formats) on elements
and I'd like to request an extension to font-size to allow scale-to-
fit within bounds (e.g. rx:font-size-min, rx:font-size-max and font-
size="scale-to-fit" or font-size="auto"). Lastly, I'd like to add a
request for flowing between blocks in an 'indesign' manner so that
content that overflows one block can continue to flow into a specified
further block.
