The page in question is the index page of a major sub-site (for my
web comic). It serves two functions:
Looks good and encourages people to continue reading the sub-site.
Warns people that they need software which can display SVG and has
links for ASV, Firefox and Opera (I intend to add links for Safari,
Renesis and maybe others as they reach what I consider a sufficient
display SMIL and IE can't display CSS rollover events (anybody know
different). Also I don't think SMIL and CSS can have universal
counting variables and flags so the results of certain actions
depends isn't allways the same. I mean if you have a long
conversation between two charactors, a different bubble is shown each
time you roll over one.
The bottom line is that this page has to look good in pretty much any
browser with or without a plug-in. I can warn of the need for
if it's enabled and an alternative if not, which at least works in IE
with ASV, Firefox and Opera, I'll just have to stick with an SVG free
