comment Using Arduino to control a 12v car light system?
Awesome, thank you. This is perfect! Project is actually for initially hooking up a microcontroller within my motorcycle to do various tasks. I'll write up a tutorial sometime when it's completed. Thanks again. I suppose I have one last curiosity - is there any limitation on transistors when combined with PWM? If a pwm is flashing at 50hz... is there any factor in limiting the transistor to 'keep up' ?

comment Using Arduino to control a 12v car light system?
This is excellent thank you. I've been studying transistors, but I think I need to study a bit more : ) re: PWM - I should have been more specific that these are LED lights. It is a 12v line but the bulb itself has a few LEDs on it - (I'm not sure exactly how its internals are set up). But it seems transistors are the way to go. The goal with the PWM is to reduce brightness.

comment How to properly scale a glyph of an SVG font using an SVG symbol viewBox
Yes exactly. Oh wow, this totally makes sense now. I wasn't aware of the overflow attribute, thanks for pointing it out. But now that I think about it - the "G Clef" as this symbol is called - is suppose to be horizontally aligned exactly where your two red dots are (the baseline). Given that, it appears obvious that this font was meant to have overflow. I think this points me in the exact direction I need to go. Perhaps I'll contact the font creator to try to extract more info. Thanks for your patience and help BigBadaboom, much appreciated!

Hmm. With preserveAspectRatio set to none, the only way I could get this to display properly is by doubling the max x / max y and ensuring the aspect ratio was 1:1 - jsfiddle.net/1wqa384u/9 I feel like I'm just shooting guesses out here now. I need to figure out a way to understand the conversion process here.

This also implies the width/height ratio should be .75. Also preserveAspectRatio="xMinYMin" is needed. Here is an updated example: jsfiddle.net/1wqa384u/8 Let me know if this seems right and I'll mark you answer : )

I should have mentioned there is a horiz-adv-x='1024' So after some fiddling + your advice - the viewbox formula seems to be: 0 (0 - em - descent) (em + horiz-adv) em

Ahh this helps a lot. Almost there. Using a viewBox of 0 0 2048 2048 cuts the top half of it off. I'll see if I can do a jsfiddle for you. Give me a moment, thanks!
