                <h1>Strange <code>vw</code>/<code>viewBox</code> interaction</h1>
<h2>&lt;rect> positioned at left edge of SVG, &lt;svg> translated 60vw, behaving as expected</h2>
<svg class="translate-vw" viewBox="0 0 1000 100">
    <rect fill="#0000FF" width="100" height="100"/>

<h2>&lt;rect> positioned at left edge of SVG then translated 60vw, not behaving as expected</h2>
<svg viewBox="0 0 1000 100">
    <rect class="translate-vw" fill="#0000FF" width="100" height="100"/>
<p>Matches the previous example only when the window is 1000px wide (matching the viewBox width). If the window is smaller or larger, the size of a <code>vw</code> is <em>first</em> scaled by the ratio of <nobr><code>(window width)/(viewBox width)</code></nobr>, <em>then</em> the normal viewBox scaling occurs, resulting in a double-correction.
<p>If you set the second SVG to a fixed <code>1000px</code> width, the reason for the correction becomes obvious - the two rects maintain alignment regardless of the window width, meaning that the 60vw length is always literally 60% of the window's width:
<h2>Identical to previous, but with a fixed size of <code>1000px</code></h2>
<svg viewBox="0 0 1000 100" width=1000>
    <rect class="translate-vw" fill="#0000FF" width="100" height="100"/>
<p>But if you set the width to anything else, such that the viewBox causes some scaling, then it's still wrong, just not in quite as confusing a manner:
<h2>Identical to previous, but with a fixed size of <code>500px</code></h2>
<svg viewBox="0 0 1000 100" width=500>
    <rect class="translate-vw" fill="#0000FF" width="100" height="100"/>
<p>Correct behavior is to scale <code>vw</code> by the ratio <nobr><code>(window width)/(&lt;svg> width)</code></nobr>. This would make the squares align in all four examples.</p>
<p>If you nest further, you just need to stack the scaling factors, with "viewBox width of outer SVG" taking the place of "window width":
<h2>Final example, with two nested &lt;svg>s, for testing purposes</h2>
<svg viewBox="0 0 1200 100" width=1000>
  <svg viewBox="0 0 100 200" width=200>
    <rect class="translate-vw" fill="#0000FF" width="100" height="100"/>

div {background: pink;}

.one {width: 60vw;}
