Here is the inline SVG code, in case it's my fault. SVG displays fine but clicking the inline xlink does not open a new tab or window but replaces the active site.
<title>SVG embedded inline in XHTML</title>
<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" version="1.1" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
<a xlink:href="http://www.mozilla.org/" target="_blank">
<text x="10" y="50" fill="blue" text-anchor="left" text-decoration="underline">
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create document using above code, be sure to name ".xhtml"
2. Open the file with Firefox 1.5 RC1 and click the link text.
Notice that the link is opened in the same tab/window.
The link should open a new tab/window.
I do not know a workaround right now, I appreciate a notice if there is one. Should be fixed in a final "Inline-SVG-ready" version, though.
Adding a xlink:target="_blank" and/or xlink:show="new" does not change that behaviour.
This bug makes links in SVGs useles, especially for SVGs embedded via an <object> tag: the new link replaces the contents of the object-frame, instead the current tab/window.
And opening a website in a 100x50 pixel iframe is just plain useless..
Btw, this happens on ALL platforms and OS, I couldn't change the fields on this bug, tho.
Using xlink:show="new" WFM in Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051111 Firefox/1.5 if I set the tab options not to force all links to open in the same window / new tab?
target="_blank" seems invalid, xlink:target certainly is, as I coudn't find a mention of it in XLink specification.
Search for "xlink:show", it also lists "target". It refers to the HTML/XHTML spec, and browsing that I read targe="_blank".
I have "open web browser links in: new tab" set and the SVG link
still opens inside the <object> tag space, not in the window or tab. See:
And scroll down to the very bottom and click on any node in the SVG
example. Can send a screenshot if you want :)
I wouldn't complain if it replaced the window/tab, but opening inside the SVG space doesn't make sense. (unless the newly loaded content is exactly the same size)
ok, forgot to look in the SVG spec.
Probably related, I cannot right-click and select "Open in new tab/window", and middle-click does nothing.
