The example given above tests only the simplest case of 0 width or height to disable the rendering of the use completely (available for SVG tiny 1.1 too). Even for SVG full 1.1 with non trivial values and the use referencing an element svg or symbol, width and height do not animate (If required, I can provide URIs with samples as well). About this example: A defs element contains a g element with a rectangle and a circle. It is referenced by an use-element. After 2 seconds for a duration of 2s the width of the use is set to 0. The shown circle and the rectangle vanish for 2s. After 6 seconds for a duration of 2s the height of the use is set to 0. The shown circle and the rectangle vanish for 2s. The fill of a small circle top left has an animation with the same timing for comparison. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Try the sample given in the URI above 2. Compare with specification (use element) 3. Compare with Opera (any version 9 to 11) Actual Results: Large rectangle and circle do not vanish, no animation of width and height of use. Expected Results: width and height of use should be animatable. Note, that for non trivial examples (no zero values as here) the effect depends on the referenced element (effectively no effect for 'normal' elements like g, typically visible effect for symbol and svg). See http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG11/struct.html#UseElement
This doesn't appear to be an animation bug, but rather that we don't honour the description of the use width/height attributes: A value of zero disables rendering of this element. (http://dev.w3.org/SVG/profiles/1.1F2/publish/struct.html#UseElementWidthAttribute) It may be that even after fixing this bug, the test case still fails due to bug 608161.
Created attachment 528245 [details] Minimal test case A minimal test case. The rendering of the circle should be disabled but it is not.
As you can see in this SVG 1.1 full test http://hoffmann.bplaced.net/svgtest/usesvg01.svg it does not animate for non zero values as well (blue: test case referenced svg; red: comparison). Ok for example in Opera, Adobe plugin, Squiggle/Batik, WebKit.

Thanks Olaf. If you don't mind, could you make a minimal test case and file another bug for that issue? If you don't have time though. I'll do it tomorrow.
Brian changed the summary, before it was in general about the animation problem - but if you think it helps, we can spend a new number with the old summary and a test case with non trivial values for width and height ;o)
(In reply to comment #5) > Brian changed the summary, before it was in general about the animation problem It looks to me like there are two separate underlying issues. - The testcase that this bug was originally filed for fails because we don't disable rendering when the <use> element itself is zero-sized. (regardless of animation) - The new testcase you linked to is different - it animates the *target pointed to* by <use>, and it looks like when that target is inside of a new <svg> fragment, we don't handle that right. These two issues deserve separate bugs, and Brian's summary-tweak was correct, given the original testcase.
Well, no problem - just one number or one for the svg and one for symbol - and maybe another for g, to ensure, that it is NOT changed, that for g it should have no effect (I assume, that if it works for g, it will work for typical other elements as well...)? I have reduced examples already finished - maybe I can put them together in one new bug number? Then we have this special case with 0 and another with non zero values, maybe including a mix 0 and non 0 in a values list?
(In reply to comment #6) > - The new testcase you linked to is different - it animates the *target > pointed to* by <use> (Sorry, I just now noticed that the <use> element gets its height/width animated in your comment 3 testcase, too -- I missed that initially since the <animate> node isn't near the <use> elements (using xlink:href targeting).) Anyway - thanks for filing the followup bug!
(that followup bug being Bug 652832, for the record)
I have followed the steps from the description on Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 6.1; rv:7.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/7.0 and the rectangle disappears after two seconds. Is this the intended behavior? In Google Chrome this is not happening.

I guess Chrome is broken then.
