How to tell when an element has loaded into an html5 document?
- svg buddies, does an svg element emit any kind of event when embedded in
an html page so that I can tell it is loaded?
i am writing a little html5 helper library that has .ready( /*your app
code here */) method that runs your app code after all the html5 audio,
images, and svg elements have loaded.

Absolutely; it's just the onload() you'd expect.
Let's be more concrete about this, as even your simple desription
leaves quite a few variabls unbound. A construct like
<object id = "my_image" type = "image/svg+xml"
data = "my_image.svg"
onload = "do_important_thing();" ...>
does just what I need in such situations. Notice you can get much
of the same effect by working with event properties, named scripts,
Do you want the event-handler to be *within* the SVG? That's also
possible, but a different thing. If this, or some other variation,
is what you're truly after, don't hesitate to follow-up here.
