Huh ? stroke patterns are supported in both SVG and Firefox(2.0.12
anyway). Now a single stroke cannot have both solid fill and pattern
border however you can make a rectangle (or polygon, ellipse, ....) that
does have a solid fill and a stroke border that is dashed or whatever.
You can always test something in Inkscape to see how the SVG is rendered.
