Could you please support a plantuml option (a parameter passed to jar) that would disable the following attributes in the output svg file:

1. style="width:937px;height:1425px;"

2. height="1425px"

3. width="937px"


This will allow auto scaling (such as fit to page size) when the svg is rendered by a browser.

Here are the elements:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?><svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" contentScriptType="application/ecmascript" contentStyleType="text/css" height="1425px" preserveAspectRatio="none" style="width:937px;height:1425px;" version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 937 1425" width="937px" zoomAndPan="magnify">

in fact these attributes can be overriden by the CSS style in browser:
svg {
    width: unset !important;
    height: unset !important;
But, might be, this is not always convenient to do this via the override.

With last beta http://beta.plantuml.net/plantuml.jar you can have:

skinparam svgDimensionStyle false

component a {
component b {
a -(0- b

If you have a better idea for the parameter name, please post your suggestion here!
