Validation Error for SVG

Jamie Gill

Hi there,

I hope your well I have received the following error on your validation system :-

Attribute src not allowed on element image at this point.

For this line of code :-

<svg width="300px" height="50px">
      <image xlink:href="/images/sterling_logo.svg" src="/images/sterling-gosling_logo.png" width="300px" height="50px"  />

I understand the validation on the basis of xlink and src been in the same tag. However this is an extremely good fallback for earlier version of IE instead of having an SVG and then IMG tags in conditional statements creating unnecessary lines of code for a fallback.

Is there any reason why this would be or why it is not allowed to validate this way? Obviously I take pride in my code validating and wondered if this is something that maybe passed to validate in the future? The URL for my document is :-

Thank you for your time I look forward to your reply,
