There might be a compability issue here though, since OOo currently generates an angle in tens of degrees (!)

I think a solution would be to ask implementations to write out the unit, like draw:angle="63deg". This way we could differ old-style values (like the undocumented 630) and new-style values (with the unit specified explicitely). But then we would have a lack of consistency between the angle units where a unit should be specified and those where it's implicit from the spec... -- David Faure, firstname.lastname@example.org, sponsored by Trolltech to work on KDE, Konqueror (http://www.konqueror.org), and KOffice (http://www.koffice.org).
