Actual Results:  
Lines printed OK (but thicker than with Deer Park Alpha 2).
Boxes printed OK.
Text printed far too bit, like about 8x too big. Overflow boxes.
But just viewed in browser, it is fine.

Version: I was complaining about version on XP SP2.
Actual Results: should read "Text printed far too big" rather than "Text printed far too bit"

This can be reproduced outside the web application. Simply save the svg code as a file suffixed .svg   . Open the file in Firefox Look at the rendering. It's nice. Print it. It's horrible.

Open it in Deer Park Alpha 2. Look at the rendering: Nice. Print it: Just as nice.

What is the build id of "Deer Park Alpha 2"? Is it a recently-fixed-on-trunk or rather regressed-in-1.5 kind of thing?

"Deer Park Alpha 2" was a version of Firefox between 1.0 and 1.5.  I believe the internal name for Firefox 1.5 was "Deer Park" during the development. And this was Alpha release 2.  Just a Firefox download that was generally available.  I wouldn't know how to compile anything.

The "About" menu item in the browser (which I'm using at this moment) says "Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8b3) Gecko/20050712 Firefox/1.0+". I can't see anything that gives a build ID.

Still the main point is that SVG doesn't print properly in the current version of Firefox.  The fact that it did print OK in an earlier version is interesting but not crucial.

Okay thanks. I asked because all the trunk nightlies since then were (and still are!) labeled 'Deer Park Alpha 2'.
