Subject: Re: problem with colours when creating shapes

I had to put
as well as set the stroke colour to the same as the fill colour in the
attributes of the filled shape to get rid of the line.
e.g. <svg:path d="M195.81 -1552.72l2.23 3.54l15.71 -10.09l-2.23
-3.59l-15.71 10.14z" style="fill: #ffffff; stroke-width: 0; stroke:
As for dashes, are you using stroke-pattern:/stroke-dashlength: or
stroke-dasharray:/stroke-dashoffset:? If I remember, Dia likes
stroke-pattern rather than the SVG standard stroke-dasharray.
