We are using guidelines in Visio to align objects, and those guidelines appear to be present in the output SVG.
When exporting from Visio, those guidelines are removed in the SVG.
You create the guidelines as a path element, with the d attribute values of ‘Z’, this may be valid SVG, but that element has 0 (zero) width and height, and doesn’t add value to the output.
