Re: SVG Feedback on HTML5 SVG Proposal from Robin Berjon on 2009-03-11 (public-html@w3.org from March 2009)

Re: SVG Feedback on HTML5 SVG Proposal from Robin Berjon on 2009-03-11 (public-html@w3.org from March 2009): "For one, one very important use case for SVG is inside an HTML document. That implies that SVG should look as natural and as local as possible, ideally completely, inside HTML. Furthermore, there is a shift in the type of people who use SVG. When it was only XML geeks and people who understood mobile constraints some things could be asked of the SVG constituency that are different from what can be asked from Joe PHP Hacker On A Deadline. Joe's smart but in a hurry, and anyway being smart he's also lazy. If it doesn't Just Work like HTML, then whipping out Flash, while annoying, will be simpler. Finally we are getting to a situation in which an implementer can grab a specification (or a library) that'll give him interoperable parsing in an HTML context. XML is a fine option for syntax-level interoperability, but it's not the only one and SVG has no reason to be married to it. SVG isn't about XML, or even syntax, it's about sassy, sexy, wicked cool graphics that make you go wow."
