Description From 2009-04-25 20:01:27 PST
The attached test case shows a bug in WebKit:  The green text should almost completely obscure the red text.  However, the red text is visible in Safari 4 at a different size and position than the green text.

Note that the red text is actually a gradient.  If the gradient was replaced with a solid color (fill="red"), then this problem is no longer present.

This may be related to Bug 25402.

I don't see a problem with the test case in r42858

The wrong behavior is caused by wrong values of the drawing rect. eseidel improved boundingBox's in the last days. It should work now. Can you test it again with the latest nightly please?

Wow.  This is much better after http://trac.webkit.org/changeset/42950.

Would you consider this fixed, Jeff?  Or do we have more work to do here?

Our rendering looks as good (or better) than FF and Opera.

We might still be using repaintRectInLocalCoordinates() in a few places where we should be using objectBoundingBox(), so related test cases could fail.  But this nice test case you provided "passes" now, as far as I can tell.

Thanks for the great test case!  (You'll see that I changed the text a little to make it more self-documenting, but otherwise landed it as-is.)

Looks great to me in nightly from 4/25.  Thanks!
