Peter Garza has produced a nice little SVG Panda story all crafted in notepad, and not a bit of scripting… Great Fun!

Mozilla finally getting on with SVG

Wednesday, March 3rd, 2004

Mozilla Futures Presentation signals that Mozilla may finally get behind the SVG work, and get it the more developers any project needs. Great news.

Unfortunately the slide show demonstrates another of Mozilla’s failings, whilst noting that Mozila “Supports the most web pages of all non-IE browsers”, clearly highlighting that most people develop for the IE, and not for web - they fall into the same trap developing for a subset of browsers (DOM 2 Events enabled ones, and they don’t even do hasFeature detection so can claim purely on standards compliance terms), it’s unnecessary, but it harms other browsers.

A shame, I prepared a tiny patch but couldn’t find anywhere to send it to, I’ll fish around, but if anyone knows…
