Any element has always a parent element. The only 'element' wich has no parent is the root documeny element (<html>)... In your case, <body> is the parent of your <svg> ;) Since <body> (or any block level element with default behavior unchanged) has no explicit height setted, it will have an auto-height regarding the needs of its content (even if background property apply to the entire viewport ^^). So 50% of <svg> parent could no be computed and svg height belong to its default value ;) You could force the body to have explicit height, by adding this to your css: html { height:100%; } body { height:100%; margin:0; } the html height is required to have a root explicit height to apply descendant percentages, zero margin (and padding, at least both at top and bottom -- but padding default to zero) for body is required to avoid total height (body height+margin+padding) being more than the viewport (display) height...
