    Support for simple links in Amaya is broken. For example the 
xlink:show attribute is completely ignored. Mozilla support for this is 
better ?

    I guess nothing will change here since Mozilla development has frozen.
    I think that we should look into the direction of Firefox but I do 
not have any hope that FF will implement those features soon. Currently, 
FF 1.01 does not support simple links. FF tries to be a 'mainstream' 
browser, so, implementing features that are not used by any site I know 
cannot be on their priority list.
