V0027:

The specification states:

The following is the BNF for SVG paths.

svg-path:
    wsp* moveto-drawto-command-groups? wsp*
moveto-drawto-command-groups:
    moveto-drawto-command-group
    | moveto-drawto-command-group wsp* moveto-drawto-command-groups
moveto-drawto-command-group:
    moveto wsp* drawto-commands?
drawto-commands:
    drawto-command
    | drawto-command wsp* drawto-commands
drawto-command:
    closepath
    | lineto
    | horizontal-lineto
    | vertical-lineto
    | curveto
    | smooth-curveto
    | quadratic-bezier-curveto
    | smooth-quadratic-bezier-curveto
    | elliptical-arc
moveto:
    ( "M" | "m" ) wsp* moveto-argument-sequence
moveto-argument-sequence:
    coordinate-pair
    | coordinate-pair comma-wsp? lineto-argument-sequence
closepath:
    ("Z" | "z")
lineto:
    ( "L" | "l" ) wsp* lineto-argument-sequence
lineto-argument-sequence:
    coordinate-pair
    | coordinate-pair comma-wsp? lineto-argument-sequence
horizontal-lineto:
    ( "H" | "h" ) wsp* horizontal-lineto-argument-sequence
horizontal-lineto-argument-sequence:
    coordinate
    | coordinate comma-wsp? horizontal-lineto-argument-sequence
vertical-lineto:
    ( "V" | "v" ) wsp* vertical-lineto-argument-sequence
vertical-lineto-argument-sequence:
    coordinate
    | coordinate comma-wsp? vertical-lineto-argument-sequence
