I try to use the possibility to mask objects.
As I read, the normal way is to select the object to be masked, select a
second object above, which will be the mask, then: Object > mask > set.
I did this, but as result, the object below just disappears.
Please see the demo at: http://www.hagoschaos.de/test/test.html
What am I doing wrong?
Or am I misunderstanding the way this function works?
Some help please.
I used a two hours ago downloaded Inkscape 0.44

It's because by SVG rules, black color is opaque in masking. White
color is transparent. What's more, the "no color" (full transparency)
means blending with "transparent black", i.e. rather
counterintuitively, also becomes opaque in a mask. So, if you make the
masking rect a gradient from white to transparent, or from white to
black, then you will get what you want.
Again, this is rather counterintuitive, but that's what the SVG
Inkscape. Draw Freely.
