about SVG browser support


Recommended Posts

Hi, I've started browsing the SVG pages, and I found a very unaccurate information.http://www.w3schools.com/svg/svg_intro.asp

Note: Firefox 1.5 has full support for SVG! If you are using this browser, you do not need to install an SVG viewer.
Well... this isn't true. Currently Firefox only has partial support for SVG Full. Making such a claim will mistake users that will think they're doing wrong SVG, when they're actually trying to use something Firefox doesn't support.http://developer.mozilla.org/en/docs/SVG_in_Firefox_1.5I've read that the next major Gecko update is schedulled for beginnings of 2007 (I think), which probably will fill these gaps.It would be nice to emphasize that Opera 8.* has full support for SVG Tiny, and the upcoming Opera 9 has support for SVG Basic, in that very same page.I prefered Opera's approach of implementing SVG incrementaly, thus sparing the user of annoyances like mangling the specification and the browser documentation.edit: another thing I foundhttp://www.w3schools.com/svg/svg_inhtml.asp

Where I come from, data is placed in document using the object element. I found it very bad, for a website that tries to advocate w3c recomendations to present something like this. Yes, I saw object afterwards.
