HTML5 Graphics with SVG & CSS3.pdf


Want to create exciting HTML5 graphics without spending eternity in JavaScript? You can! This provides a basic overview of the two declarative languages bound to HTML5 - CSS 3.0 and Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG). The decision to incorporate both has to do with the fairly tight relationship that SVG has with CSS and with HTML and the desire to focus on a book that provides only moderate JavaScript code usage. SVG is now supported in all contemporary browsers with the release of SVG support in Internet Explorer 9.0, meaning that it has now reached a point where web developers can make use of its power. This piece provides a jumping off point for developers who want to use SVG in HTML5.
