Path in symbol not interpreted
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050828 SeaMonkey/1.1a Build Identifier: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.9a1) Gecko/20050828 SeaMonkey/1.1a A svg:clipPath element, which is defined inside a symbol-element, can't be referenced (isn't applied); moving it out of the symbol (into defs), it works. As clipPath is allowed in the content model of symbol (at least in the SVG 1.1 Recommendation), I suppose it should be allowed there. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: Open the sample file, which is the same as that of Bug 193825, except that it uses symbols & references. Actual Results: No clipping is done. Expected Results: The clipPath should be applied.
This is the same test case as for Bug 193825, except that the rectangle & clippath are defined inside a symbol which is referenced later. Moving the clipPath element one level up (making it a child of defs) it works.

This is still present on trunk, but I'm not sure how valid/useful it is to have a <clipPath> _inside_ a <symbol>, or whether we really care to use up time allowing that.

Ever confirmed: true
Is this too time expensive? I work as gr. designer and I can imagine using such construction...
What stops you putting the <clipPath> outside of the <symbol> instead of inside?
Nothing :) But, I think if this is not prohibited by the SVG standard http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/masking.html#ClipPathElement we should allow designers create such construction... otherwise we will cause compatility problems... by my opinion.
Seems to work now both in trunk and in Firefox 3.6.

Actually it doesn't work. Previous releases didn't clip at all. 3.6 and above now clip everything regardless of what the clip path should clip.

The attached .zip contains a .svg that contains 2 implementations of a clip-path use, both should render the same way. A PNG of how it should look after the 2 intersections are done is also included.
