A MathJax user reported that the HTML+CSS code generated by MathJax to display mathematical formulas is not rendered correctly in Webkit when scaled inside SVG:


The code generated by MathJax contains many <span>'s and it's hard to say what the problem is. However, I think I have isolated one issue with <span style="display: inline-block; position: relative;">, which are used everywhere in the generated code.

In the attached testcase, such a span is used to draw a 50x50 red rectangle. I use SVG to scale it by a factor of 2. In Firefox, it thus fits in the 100x100 black frame. However in Webkit this rectangle is still rendered with a size of 50x50. Note that if you use "position: static;", it is correctly scaled.

Of course, this affects both coordinates and size. You can try to use "left: 25px; top: 25px; width: 25px; height: 25px;" in the testcase.

Another test case.

This bug prevents the use of Closure UI widgets in SVG.  Attached is an independently created testcase.  Works fine in Gecko.

SVG trees don't have RenderLayers.  It's a loooong standing bug. :(

Safari 15.5 differs from other browsers

I am able to reproduce this bug in Safari 15.5 on macOS based on attached "Another Test", it is also reproducible using other test case but I am attaching just one screenshot for reference. All other browsers match each other as shown in the screenshot as well. Thanks!

position:relative triggers RenderLayer, so dup of bug 23113.
