inconsistent units pt and px in generated SVG image

+1 vote
When I generate an SVG image using plantuml.8022.jar, then the following root element is created:

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" height="53pt" style="width:43px;height:53px;" version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 43 53" width="43pt">

While the style attribute sets width to 43px, the width attribute has a value of 43pt; similar for the height attribute.

This inconsistent use of the units px and pt can cause trouble when a browser is used to repesent the generated SVG image. The trouble is avoided, when pt is either replaced with px or when pt is omitted.

You are right! That is the problem, why my pictures are always to large.

Many thanks for the feedback and the detailled report.

This has been solved in the last beta and will be in next official release
