For elements that establish a new viewport, the ISVGFitToViewBox::preserveAspectRatio property applies only when you provide a value for the ISVGFitToViewBox::viewBox attribute on the same element. If you do not specify the ISVGFitToViewBox::viewBox attribute, the ISVGFitToViewBox::preserveAspectRatio attribute is ignored.
