Description Richard Evans 2008-09-01 07:48:17 UTC
I'm trying to get text to flow along a path, using an animate element to alter the startOffset attribute of the textPath element.

This does not work.  Attached example is a simple textPath from the SVG spec with an animate added.

Possible Patch from Sebastian

The patch is likely only a partial fix for the problem.

In particular it only catches DOM attribute changes but ignores animated changes.  A more complete fix might be as simple as extending the change to the 'handleAnimatedAttributeChanged' method.
