Are there any limits I'm likely to hit?

Hi all;

Our use case is we're creating a SVG file to embed in an HTML file. That is our only use, no Swing or anything else. We do need it to be self-contained (ie images are embedded in the SVG, not links to an external file).

Everything seems to be fine so far but I figure better to ask. Any likely issues we might hit?

thanks - dave

That's pretty much the main use case for JFreeSVG, so I think it should work well for what you are doing. The biggest issue I can think of at the moment is that we rely on the Java2D font metrics but there are cases where these don't correspond exactly to the font metrics used by the SVG renderer (browser or whatever).

The other limitation is the bounding box feature that is missing, as you mentioned in one of your other posts...that should be resolved in the next release.
