Re: problem with colours when creating shapes

I had to put

stroke-width: 0;

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.
