a question about the other SVG developers on the list
- I am curious if anyone else was previously working in DHTML. Essentially
DOM but as far as the web industry goes it was a marketable job niche. Up
until SVG dropped in my lap my specialty was highly dynamic and interactive
client-side code. Although many clients were hesitant to use things that
fell under the DHTML umbrella because of severe browser incompatibility.
The reason I ask this is because I feel SVG is the pinnacle of where the
DHTML concept was going. Layers and Styles and Event capture all seem a bit
half baked with current browsers and HTML. On the other hand, SVG is
wrestle with the DOM variations of IE/NN on PC/Mac has transitioned nicely
into SVG. With SVG I can confidently say if certain functionality is
possible just based on knowing the DOM. Even better, the DOM implementation
is so complete that I can finally have the freedom to access every component
of the page I want. SVG is very exciting! I am interested to see if others
are having a similar experience based on their previous experience.
