<use xlink:href> should not respect <base> for local references
Steps to reproduce: Open the testcase Actual result: Logo is invisible Expected result: Logo is displayed Works as expected: Chrome, Safari, IE 10 and 11 Works as actual: Firefox, Edge A lot of people are running into this issue and fixing by using absolute references: https://gist.github.com/leonderijke/c5cf7c5b2e424c0061d2 I think <base> should not be used for local references aka #foo.
Please approach w3c first if you want things to change and get agreement on a specification update. The SVG specification currently says to generate an absolute URL https://www.w3.org/TR/SVG2/linking.html#processingURL-absolute says In contrast, a base element affects relative URLs in any SVG or HTML document, by altering the document base URL. so you'll need to get the SVG specification changed first.

Thanks Anthony for the report. The closest I find so far is * Document.baseURI getter doesn't return the parent document's base URL for iframes https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=484930 I opened another issue on the Chromium project to see what would be the comments. https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=707758 I checked in Blink (Opera), the use.baseURI is properly set on the element but is not used for deferencing the xlink:href
Test case showing the issue.
Robert: What's the best forum to bring up those issues?
Actually, that issue has already been brought up: "As defined in CSS Values and Units, a fragment-only URL in a style property must be treated as a same-document URL reference, regardless of the file in which the property was declared." https://github.com/w3c/svgwg/issues/61 https://github.com/w3c/svgwg/commit/f378b15b95841cb1297eda7b1a6a2ca2d549ee71 Reopening per spec.

Yes and in addition, the issue was closed as WONTFIX on Chrome project because of Web Compatibility issues. https://bugs.chromium.org/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=707758#c3 > This was changed via issue 470608 after we had attempted to implement the Gecko behavior in issue 449027 and got push-back (possibly because this "broken" behavior had existed in WebKit for quite a while.) Given that Chrome, Safari, IE 10 and 11 works the same, I would be in favor of following the behavior of others.
It has been fixed in Edge.
Robert : Do you think this bug is easy enough to fix that it could be a mentored bug?
Seems to be the same issue as bug 1357432 which already has a patch. Maybe just dup to that one.
