5 Frequently Asked Questions NeedsUpdate, SVG, SVG FAQ
We currently maintain two documents to help answer this question: a status page for SVG in Firefox 1.5+ and a status page for SVG in the development trunk.
6 Linking SVG
The 'target' attribute on the SVG 'a' element doesn't work in Mozilla Firefox 1.5. When SVG documents are embedded within a parent HTML document using the <object> tag: </object>
7 Namespaces Crash Course SVG, XML
As an XML dialect, SVG is namespaced. It is important to understand the concept of namespaces and how they are used if you plan to author SVG content. Versions of SVG viewers prior to the release of Firefox 1.5 unfortunately paid scant attention to namespaces, but they are essential to multi-XML dialect supporting user agents such as Gecko-based browsers which must be very strict. Take some time to understand namespaces now and it will save you all sorts of headaches in future.
8 Example SVG, XML
In this example, we use XHTML, SVG, JavaScript, and the DOM to animate a swarm of "motes". These motes are governed by two simple principles. First, each mote tries to move towards the mouse cursor, and second each mote tries to move away from the average mote position. Combined, we get this very natural-looking behavior.

15 Height NeedsCompatTable, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute indicates a vertical length in the user coordinate system. The exact effect of this coordinate depends on each element. Most of the time, it represents the height of the rectangular region of the reference element (see each individual element's documentation for exceptions).
16 Width NeedsCompatTable, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute indicates an horizontal length in the user coordinate system. The exact effect of this coordinate depends on each element. Most of the time, it represents the width of the rectangular region of the reference element (see each individual element's documentation for exceptions).
17 accent-height NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute defines the distance from the origin to the top of accent characters, measured by a distance within the font coordinate system.
18 accumulate NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute controls whether or not the animation is cumulative.
19 additive NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute controls whether or not the animation is additive.
20 alignment-baseline NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The alignment-baseline attribute specifies how an object is aligned with respect to its parent. This property specifies which baseline of this element is to be aligned with the corresponding baseline of the parent. For example, this allows alphabetic baselines in Roman text to stay aligned across font size changes. It defaults to the baseline with the same name as the computed value of the alignment-baseline property.
21 ascent NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute defines the maximum unaccented depth of the font within the font coordinate system.
22 attributeName NeedsCompatTable, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute indicates the name of the attribute in the parent element that is going to be changed during an animation.

The azimuth attribute represent the direction angle for the light source on the XY plane (clockwise), in degrees from the x axis.
25 baseFrequency Filters, NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The baseFrequency attribute represent The base frequencies parameter for the noise function of the <feturbulence> primitive. If two <number>s are provided, the first number represents a base frequency in the X direction and the second value represents a base frequency in the Y direction. If one number is provided, then that value is used for both X and Y.
26 baseline-shift NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The baseline-shift attribute allows repositioning of the dominant-baseline relative to the dominant-baseline of the parent text content element. The shifted object might be a sub- or superscript.
27 begin NeedsCompatTable, Reference, Référence, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute defines when an animation should begin.
28 bias Filters, NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The bias attribute shifts the range of the filter. After applying the kernelMatrix of the <feconvolvematrix> element to the input image to yield a number and applied the divisor attribute, the bias attribute is added to each component. This allows representation of values that would otherwise be clamped to 0 or 1.
29 calcMode NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute specifies the interpolation mode for the animation. The default mode is linear, however if the attribute does not support linear interpolation (e.g. for strings), the calcMode attribute is ignored and discrete interpolation is used.
30 class NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsExample, NeedsMobileBrowserCompatibility, Reference, SVG, SVG Attribute
Assigns a class name or set of class names to an element. You may assign the same class name or names to any number of elements. If you specify multiple class names, they must be separated by whitespace characters.
31 clip NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The clip attribute has the same parameter values as defined for the css clip property. Unitless values, which indicate current user coordinates, are permitted on the coordinate values on the <shape>. The value of auto defines a clipping path along the bounds of the viewport created by the given element.
32 clip-path NeedsCompatTable, SVG, SVG Attribute
The clip-path attribute bind the element is applied to with a given <clippath> element
33 clip-rule NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The clip-rule attribute only applies to graphics elements that are contained within a <clipPath> element. The clip-rule attribute basically works as the fill-rule attribute, except that it applies to <clipPath> definitions.

39 color-rendering NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The color-rendering attribute provides a hint to the SVG user agent about how to optimize its color interpolation and compositing operations.

color-rendering takes precedence over color-interpolation-filters. For example, assume color-rendering: optimizeSpeed and color-interpolation-filters: linearRGB. In this case, the SVG user agent should perform color operations in a way that optimizes performance, which might mean sacrificing the color interpolation precision as specified by color-interpolation-filters: linearRGB.
40 contentScriptType NeedsCompatTable, SVG, SVG Attribute
The contentScriptType attribute on the <svg> element specifies the default scripting language for the given document fragment.
41 contentStyleType NeedsCompatTable, SVG, SVG Attribute

43 cx NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
For the <circle> and the <ellipse> element, this attribute define the x-axis coordinate of the center of the element. If the attribute is not specified, the effect is as if a value of "0" were specified.
44 cy NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
For the <circle> and the <ellipse> element, this attribute define the y-axis coordinate of the center of the element. If the attribute is not specified, the effect is as if a value of "0" were specified.

This attribute defines a path to follow.
46 data-*
The data-* SVG attributes form a class of attributes, called custom data attributes, allows proprietary information to be exchanged between the SVG content and its DOM representation that may be used by scripts. All such custom data are available via the SVGElement interface of the element the attribute is set on. The SVGElement.dataset property gives access to them.
47 diffuseConstant Filters, NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The diffuseConstant attribute represant the kd value in the Phong lighting model. In SVG, this can be any non-negative number.
If the attribute is not specified, then the effect is as if a value of 1 were specified.
48 direction NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The direction attribute specifies the base writing direction of text and the direction of embeddings and overrides (see unicode-bidi) for the Unicode bidirectional algorithm. For the direction attribute to have any effect on an element that does not by itself establish a new text chunk (such as a <tspan> element without absolute position adjustments due to x or y attributes), the unicode-bidi property's value must be embed or bidi-override.
49 display NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, Reference, Référence, SVG, SVG Attribute
The display attribute lets you control the rendering of graphical or container elements.
50 divisor Filters, NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
After applying the kernelMatrix of the <feconvolvematrix> element to the input image to yield a number, that number is divided by the value given to the divisor attribute to yield the final destination color value. A divisor that is the sum of all the matrix values tends to have an evening effect on the overall color intensity of the result.
51 dominant-baseline NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, Reference, Référence, SVG, SVG Attribute
The dominant-baseline attribute is used to determine or re-determine a scaled-baseline-table. A scaled-baseline-table is a compound value with three components: a baseline-identifier for the dominant-baseline, a baseline-table and a baseline-table font-size. Some values of the property re-determine all three values; other only re-establish the baseline-table font-size. When the initial value, auto, would give an undesired result, this property can be used to explicitly set the desire scaled-baseline-table.
52 dur NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute indicates the simple duration of the animation.
53 dx NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, Reference, Référence, SVG, SVG Attribute
The dx attribute indicates a shift along the x-axis on the position of an element or its content. What exactly is shifted depends on the element for which this attribute is set.
54 dy NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, Reference, Référence, SVG, SVG Attribute
The dy attribute indicates a shift along the y-axis on the position of an element or its content. What exactly is shifted depends on the element for which this attribute is set.

The fill attribute has two meanings based on the context it's used.
60 fill-opacity NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, Reference, Référence, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute specifies the opacity of the color or the content the current object is filled with.
61 fill-rule NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, Reference, Référence, SVG, SVG Attribute
The fill-rule attribute indicates how to determine what side of a path is inside a shape, to determine how the fill property paints the shape. For a simple, non-intersecting path, it is intuitively clear what region lies "inside"; however, for a more complex path, such as a path that intersects itself or where one subpath encloses another, the interpretation of "inside" is not so obvious.
62 filter NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute, SVG Filter
The filter attribute defines the filter effects define by the <filter> element that shall be applied to its element.
63 filterRes NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute, SVG Filter

64 filterUnits NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute, SVG Filter
The filterUnits attribute defines the coordinate system for attributes x, y, width and height.
65 flood-color NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute, SVG Filter
The flood-color attribute indicates what color to use to flood the current filter primitive subregion defined through the <feflood> element. The keyword currentColor and ICC colors can be specified in the same manner as within a <paint> specification for the fill and stroke attributes.
66 flood-opacity NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute, SVG Filter
The flood-opacity attribute indicates the opacity value to use across the current filter primitive subregion defined through the <feflood> element.
67 font-family NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The font-family attribute indicates which font family will be used to render the text, specified as a prioritized list of font family names and/or generic family names.
68 font-size NeedsCompatTable, SVG, SVG Attribute
The font-size attribute refers to the size of the font from baseline to baseline when multiple lines of text are set solid in a multiline layout environment. For SVG, if a <length> is provided without a unit identifier (e.g., an unqualified number such as 128), the browser processes the <length> as a height value in the current user coordinate system.
69 font-size-adjust NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The font-size-adjust attribute allows authors to specify an aspect value for an element that will preserve the x-height of the first choice font in a substitute font.

77 gradientTransform NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The gradientTransform attribute contains the definition of an optional additional transformation from the gradient coordinate system onto the target coordinate system (i.e., userSpaceOnUse or objectBoundingBox). This allows for things such as skewing the gradient. This additional transformation matrix is post-multiplied to (i.e., inserted to the right of) any previously defined transformations, including the implicit transformation necessary to convert from object bounding box units to user space.
78 gradientUnits NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The gradientUnits attribute defines the coordinate system for attributes x1, y1, x2 and y2 on the <lineargradient> element or for attributes cx, cy, r, fx, and fy on the <radialgradient>.
79 href Reference, SVG, SVG Attribute
The href attribute defines a link to a resource as a reference URL. The exact meaning of that link depends on the context of each element using it.
80 image-rendering NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The image-rendering attribute provides a hint to the browser about how to make speed vs. quality tradeoffs as it performs image processing.

As a presentation attribute, it also can be used as a property directly inside a CSS stylesheet, see css image-rendering for further information

87 kernelMatrix Filters, NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
the order attribute defines the list of <number>s that make up the kernel matrix for the <feconvolvematrix> element. Values are separated by space characters and/or a comma. The number of entries in the list must equal to <orderX> by <orderY> as defined in the order attribute.
88 kernelUnitLength Filters, NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The kernelUnitLength attribute has two meaning based on the context it's used.
89 kerning NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The kerning attribute indicates whether the browser should adjust inter-glyph spacing based on kerning tables that are included in the relevant font (i.e., enable auto-kerning) or instead disable auto-kerning and instead set inter-character spacing to a specific length (typically, zero).
90 keySplines NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The keySplines attribute define a set of Bézier control points associated with the keyTimes list, defining a cubic Bézier function that controls interval pacing. The attribute value is a semicolon-separated list of control point descriptions. Each control point description is a set of four values: x1 y1 x2 y2, describing the Bézier control points for one time segment. The keyTimes values that define the associated segment are the Bézier "anchor points", and the keySplines values are the control points. Thus, there must be one fewer sets of control points than there are keyTimes.

The values of x1 y1 x2 y2 must all be in the range 0 to 1.

This attribute is ignored unless the calcMode is set to spline.

If there are any errors in the keySplines specification (bad values, too many or too few values), the animation will not occur.
91 keyTimes NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsCompatTable, SVG, SVG Attribute
The keyTimes attribute is a semicolon-separated list of time values used to control the pacing of the animation. Each time in the list corresponds to a value in the values attribute list, and defines when the value is used in the animation. Each time value in the keyTimes list is specified as a floating point value between 0 and 1 (inclusive), representing a proportional offset into the duration of the animation element.
92 lengthAdjust NeedsCompatTable, NeedsContent, SVG
When an SVG <text> or <tspan> element has a specific length set using the textLength attribute, the lengthAdjust attribute controls how the text is stretched or compressed into that length.
93 letter-spacing NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The letter-spacing attribute specifies spacing behavior between text characters supplemental to any spacing due to the kerning attribute.
94 lighting-color NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute, SVG Filter
The lighting-color attribute defines the color of the light source for filter primitives elements <fediffuselighting> and <fespecularlighting>.
95 limitingConeAngle Filters, NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The limitingConeAngle attribute represents the angle in degrees between the spot light axis (i.e. the axis between the light source and the point to which it is pointing at) and the spot light cone. So it defines a limiting cone which restricts the region where the light is projected. No light is projected outside the cone.
96 local Attribute, Reference, SVG, Web

SVG color is an addition to a base profile of the SVG language. A user agent therefore conforms to at least one base profile.
97 marker-end NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The marker-end defines the arrowhead or polymarker that will be drawn at the final vertex of the given <path> element or basic shape. Note that for a <path> element which ends with a closed sub-path, the last vertex is the same as the initial vertex on the given sub-path. In this case, if marker-end does not equal none, then it is possible that two markers will be rendered on the given vertex. One way to prevent this is to set marker-end to none. (Note that the same comment applies to <polygon> elements.)
98 marker-mid NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The marker-mid defines the arrowhead or polymarker that shall be drawn at every vertex other than the first and last vertex of the given <path> element or basic shape.

The numOctaves parameter for the noise function of the <feturbulence> primitive.
110 opacity NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The opacity attribute specifies the transparency of an object or of a group of objects, that is, the degree to which the background behind the element is overlaid.

114 overline-position Attribute, Reference, Référence, SVG, font
The overline-position attribute represents the ideal vertical position of the overline. The overline position is expressed in the font's coordinate system.
115 overline-thickness Attribute, Reference, Référence, SVG, font
The overline-thickness attribute represents the ideal thickness of the overline. The overline thickness is expressed in the font's coordinate system.
116 paint-order Reference, Référence, SVG
The paint-order attribute specifies the order that the fill, stroke, and markers of a given shape or text element are painted. Its default value is normal, which indicates that the fill will be painted first, then the stroke, and finally the markers. To specify a different order, a white space separated list of keywords fill, stroke, and markers can be used. If any of the three painting components is omitted, then they will be painted in their default order after the specified components. For example, using stroke is equivalent to stroke fill markers.
117 pathLength NeedsCompatTable, Reference, Référence, SVG, SVG Attribute, SVG Reference
This attribute lets the author specify a total length for the path, in whatever units the author chooses. This value is then used to calibrate the browser's distance calculations with those of the author, by scaling all distance computations using the ratio pathLength / (computed value of path length).
118 patternContentUnits NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The patternContentUnits attribute defines the coordinate system for the contents of the <pattern>. Note that this attribute has no effect if attribute viewBox is specified on the <pattern> element.
119 patternTransform NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The patternTransform attribute contains the definition of an optional additional transformation from the pattern coordinate system onto the target coordinate system. This allows for things such as skewing the pattern tiles. This additional transformation matrix is post-multiplied to (i.e., inserted to the right of) any previously defined transformations, including the implicit transformation necessary to convert from object bounding box units to user space.
120 patternUnits NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The patternUnits attribute defines the coordinate system for attributes x, y, width and height.
121 pointer-events NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, Reference, Référence, SVG, SVG Attribute
The pointer-events attribute allows authors to control whether or when an element may be the target of a mouse event. This attribute is used to specify under which circumstance (if any) a mouse event should go "through" an element and target whatever is "underneath" that element instead.
122 points NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The points attribute define a list of points required to draw a  <polyline> or <polygon> element.
123 pointsAtX Filters, NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute

125 pointsAtZ Filters, NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The pointsAtZ attribute represent the X location in the coordinate system established by attribute primitiveUnits on the <filter> element of the point at which the light source is pointing, assuming that, in the initial coordinate system, the positive Z-axis comes out towards the person viewing the content and assuming that one unit along the Z-axis equals one unit in X and Y.
126 preserveAlpha Filters, NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
the preserveAlpha attribute indicates how a <feconvolvematrix> element handled alpha transparency.

A value of false indicates that the convolution matrix will apply to all channels, including the alpha channel. This is the default value.
127 preserveAspectRatio NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
In some cases, typically when using the viewBox attribute, it is desirable that the graphics stretch to fit non-uniformly to take up the entire viewport. In other cases, it is desirable that uniform scaling be used for the purposes of preserving the aspect ratio of the graphics.

Attribute preserveAspectRatio indicates whether or not to force uniform scaling.

For all elements that support that attribute (see above), except for the <image> element, preserveAspectRatio only applies when a value has been provided for viewBox on the same element. For these elements, if attribute viewBox is not provided, then preserveAspectRatio is ignored.

For <image> elements, preserveAspectRatio indicates how referenced images should be fitted with respect to the reference rectangle and whether the aspect ratio of the referenced image should be preserved with respect to the current user coordinate system.
128 primitiveUnits NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute, SVG Filter
The primitiveUnits attribute specifies the coordinate system for the various length values within the filter primitives and for the attributes that define the filter primitive subregion.
129 r NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
For the <circle> this attribute defines the radius of the element. A value of zero disables rendering of the circle.
130 radius Filters, NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
The radius attribute represent the radius for the operation on a given <femorphology> filter primitive. If two <number>s are provided, the first number represents a x-radius and the second value represents a y-radius. If one number is provided, then that value is used for both X and Y. The values are in the coordinate system established by the primitiveUnits attribute on the <filter> element.
131 repeatCount NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute indicates the number of time the animation will take place.
132 repeatDur NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute specifies the total duration for repeat.
133 requiredFeatures NeedsCompatTable, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute takes a list of feature strings, with the individual strings separated by white space. It determines whether or not all of the named features are supported by the browser; if all of them are supported, the attribute evaluates to true end the element is rendered; otherwise, the attribute evaluates to false and the current element and its children are skipped and thus will not be rendered. This provides a way to design SVG that gracefully falls back when features aren't available.
134 restart NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute indicates when animation can or can not restart.
135 result NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute

The writing-mode attribute applies only to <text> elements; the attribute is ignored for <tspan>, <tref>, <altGlyph> and <textPath> sub-elements. (Note that the inline-progression-direction can change within a <text> element due to the Unicode bidirectional algorithm and properties direction and unicode-bidi.
177 x NeedsCompatTable, SVG, SVG Attribute
This attribute indicates an x-axis coordinate in the user coordinate system. The exact effect of this coordinate depend on each element. Most of the time, it represent the x-axis coordinate of the upper-left corner of the rectangular region of the reference element (see each individual element's documentation for exceptions).Its syntax is the same as that for <length>

A value is optional; if a value is supplied, it shall contain a string that describes the resource. In general it is preferable to use a <title> child element rather than a xlink:title attribute.
184 xml:lang Attribute, Reference, SVG
xml:lang is a universal attribute allowed in all XML dialects to mark up the natural human language that an element contains. It's almost identical in usage to HTML's lang, but in conforming XML 1.0 documents, it does not allow the use of a null attribute value (xml:lang="") to indicate an unknown language. Instead, use xml:lang="und".
185 xml:space NeedsCompatTable, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Attribute
SVG supports the standard XML attribute xml:space to specify the handling of white space characters within a given <text> element's character data. Note that any child element of a <text> element may also have an xml:space attribute which will apply to that child element's text content. Note that this attribute influences the way a browser should parse the xml content and therefore will change the way the DOM is built. It means that any change made to the value of this attribute through the DOM API may have no effect.

Technical review completed.
192 Basic Transformations Intermediate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
Now we're ready to start distorting our beautiful images. But first, let's formally introduce the <g> element. With this helper, you can assign properties to a complete set of elements. Actually, that's its only purpose. An example:
193 Basic shapes Beginner, NeedsBeginnerUpdate, NeedsMarkupWork, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
There are several basic shapes used for most SVG drawing. The purpose of these shapes is fairly obvious from their names. Some of the attributes that determine their position and size are given, but an element reference would probably contain more accurate and complete descriptions along with other properties that won't be covered in here. However, since they're used in most SVG documents, it's necessary to give them some sort of introduction.
194 Clipping and masking Advanced, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
Erasing part of what one has created might at first sight look contradictory. But when you try to create a semicircle in SVG, you will find out the use of the following properties quickly.
195 Fills and Strokes Beginner, NeedLiveSamples, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
There are several ways to color shapes (including specifying attributes on the object) using inline CSS, an embedded CSS section, or an external CSS file. Most SVG you'll find around the web use inline CSS, but there are advantages and disadvantages associated with each type.
196 Filter effects Advanced, NeedsContent, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
There are situations, where basic shapes do not provide the flexibility you need to achieve a certain effect. Drop shadows, to provide a popular example, cannot be created reasonably with a combination of gradients. Filters are SVG's mechanism to create sophisticated effects.
197 Getting Started Beginner, NeedsBeginnerUpdate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
Let us dive straight in with a simple example. Take a look at the following code.
198 Gradients Intermediate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
Perhaps more exciting than just fills and strokes is the fact that you can also create and apply gradients as either fills or strokes.
199 Introduction Beginner, Guide, NeedsBeginnerUpdate, NeedsUpdate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial, Tutorial
SVG is an XML language, similar to XHTML, which can be used to draw graphics, such as the ones shown to the right. It can be used to create an image either by specifying all the lines and shapes necessary, by modifying already existing raster images, or by a combination of both. The image and its components can also be transformed, composited together, or filtered to change their appearance completely.
200 Other content in SVG Intermediate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
Apart from graphic primitives like rectangles and circles, SVG offers a set of elements to embed other types of content in images as well.
201 Paths Intermediate, NeedsContent, NeedsHelp, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
The <path> element is the most powerful element in the SVG library of basic shapes. You can use it to create lines, curves, arcs and more.
202 Patterns Advanced, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
Patterns, in my opinion, are one of the more confusing fill types to use in SVG. They're also very powerful, so they're worth talking about and getting at least a fundamental grasp on. Like gradients, the <pattern> element should be put in the <defs> section of your SVG file.
203 Positions Beginner, NeedsBeginnerUpdate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial, beginner
For all elements, SVG uses a coordinate system or grid system similar to the one used by canvas (and by a whole lot of other computer drawing routines). That is, the top left corner of the document is considered to be the point (0,0). Positions are then measured in pixels from the top left corner, with the positive x direction being to the right, and the positive y direction being to the bottom. Note that this is the opposite of the way you're taught to graph as a kid. However, this is the same way elements in HTML are positioned (By default, LTR documents are considered not the RTL documents which position X from right-to-left).
204 SVG Filters Tutorial SVG filters primitives
Technical review completed. Editorial review completed.
205 SVG fonts Advanced, NeedsUpdate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
When SVG was specified, support for web fonts was not widespread in browsers. Since accessing the correct font file is however crucial for rendering text correctly, a font description technology was added to SVG to provide this ability. It was not meant for compatibility with other formats like PostScript or OTF, but rather as a simple means of embedding glyph information into SVG when rendered.
206 SVG image element Beginner, NeedsBeginnerUpdate, NeedsContent, NeedsUpdate, SVG, Tutorial
The SVG <image> element allows for raster images to be rendered within an SVG object.
207 Texts Intermediate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
When talking about text in SVG we have to differentiate two almost completely separate topics. The one is the inclusion and display of text in an image, and the other are SVG fonts. The latter may be described in a later section of the tutorial, while we will focus completely on the first part: Bringing text into an SVG image.
208 Tools for SVG Intermediate, NeedsUpdate, SVG, Tools
Now that we covered the basics of the SVG internals, we will take a look at some tools to work with SVG files.

225 <defs> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Container
SVG allows graphical objects to be defined for later reuse. It is recommended that, wherever possible, referenced elements be defined inside of a <defs> element. Defining these elements inside of a <defs> element promotes understandability of the SVG content and thus promotes accessibility. Graphical elements defined in a <defs> element will not be directly rendered. You can use a <use> element to render those elements wherever you want on the viewport.
226 <desc> Element, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Descriptive

The <hatch> SVG element is used to fill or stroke an object using one or more pre-defined paths that are repeated at fixed intervals in a specified direction to cover the areas to be painted.
266 <hatchpath> Element, Experimental, Filters, NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsMobileBrowserCompatibility, Reference, SVG
The <hatchpath> SVG element defines a hatch path used by the <hatch> element.
267 <hkern> Deprecated, Element, NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsExample, NeedsMobileBrowserCompatibility, Reference, SVG, SVG Font
The <hkern> SVG element allows to fine-tweak the horizontal distance between two glyphs. This process is known as kerning.
268 <image> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Graphics
The <image> SVG element allows a raster image to be included in an SVG document.
269 <line> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Graphics
The <line> element is an SVG basic shape used to create a line connecting two points.
270 <linearGradient> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Gradient
The <linearGradient> SVG element lets authors define linear gradients to fill or stroke graphical elements.
271 <marker> Element, SVG, SVG Container
The <marker> element defines the graphics that is to be used for drawing arrowheads or polymarkers on a given <path>, <line>, <polyline> or <polygon> element.
272 <mask> Element, NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsMobileBrowserCompatibility, SVG, SVG Container
In SVG, you can specify that any other graphics object or <g> element can be used as an alpha mask for compositing the current object into the background. A mask is defined with the <mask> element. A mask is used/referenced using the mask property.
273 <metadata> Element, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Descriptive
The <metadata> SVG element allows to add metadata to SVG content. Metadata is structured information about data. The contents of <metadata> elements should be elements from other XML namespaces such as RDF, FOAF, etc.
274 <missing-glyph> Deprecated, Element, NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsExample, NeedsMobileBrowserCompatibility, SVG, SVG Container
The <missing-glyph> SVG element's content is rendered, if for a given character the font doesn't define an appropriate <glyph>.
275 <mpath> Element, NeedsExample, Reference, SVG, SVG Animation
The <mpath> sub-element for the <animateMotion> element provides the ability to reference an external <path> element as the definition of a motion path.
276 <path> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Graphics
The <path> SVG element is the generic element to define a shape. All the basic shapes can be created with a path element.
277 <pattern> Element, NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsMobileBrowserCompatibility, SVG, SVG Container
The <pattern> element defines a graphics object which can be redrawn at repeated x and y-coordinate intervals ("tiled") to cover an area.
278 <polygon> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Graphics
The <polygon> element defines a closed shape consisting of a set of connected straight line segments. The last point is connected to the first point. For open shapes see the <polyline> element.
279 <polyline> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Graphics
The <polyline> SVG element is an SVG basic shape that creates straight lines connecting several points. Typically a polyline is used to create open shapes as the last point doesn't have to be connected to the first point. For closed shapes see the <polygon> element.
280 <radialGradient> Element, SVG, SVG Gradient
The <radialGradient> SVG element lets authors define radial gradients to fill or stroke graphical elements.
281 <rect> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Graphics
The rect element is an SVG basic shape, used to create rectangles based on the position of a corner and their width and height. It may also be used to create rectangles with rounded corners.
282 <script> Element, Reference, SVG
A SVG script element is equivalent to the script element in HTML and thus is the place for scripts (e.g., ECMAScript).
283 <set> Element, NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsExample, NeedsMobileBrowserCompatibility, SVG, SVG Animation
The <set> element provides a simple means of just setting the value of an attribute for a specified duration. It supports all attribute types, including those that cannot reasonably be interpolated, such as string and boolean values. The <set> element is non-additive. The additive and accumulate attributes are not allowed, and will be ignored if specified.
284 <solidColor> Element, Experimental, NeedsCompatTable, NeedsContent, Reference, SVG
The <solidColor> SVG element lets authors define a single color for use in multiple places in an SVG document.
285 <stop> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Gradient
The <stop> SVG element defines the ramp of colors to use on a gradient, which is a child element to either the <linearGradient> or the <radialGradient> element.
286 <style> Element, Reference, SVG
The <style> SVG element allows style sheets to be embedded directly within SVG content. SVG's style element has the same attributes as the corresponding element in HTML (see HTML's <style> element).
287 <svg> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Container, Web
The svg element can be used to embed an SVG fragment inside the current document (for example, an HTML document). This SVG fragment has its own viewport and coordinate system.
288 <switch> Element, NeedsExample, SVG, SVG Container
The <switch> SVG element evaluates the requiredFeatures, requiredExtensions and systemLanguage attributes on its direct child elements in order, and then processes and renders the first child for which these attributes evaluate to true. All others will be bypassed and therefore not rendered. If the child element is a container element such as a <g>, then the entire subtree is either processed/rendered or bypassed/not rendered.
289 <symbol> Element, SVG, SVG Container
The <symbol> element is used to define graphical template objects which can be instantiated by a <use> element. The use of symbol elements for graphics that are used multiple times in the same document adds structure and semantics. Documents that are rich in structure may be rendered graphically, as speech, or as Braille, and thus promote accessibility. Note that a symbol element itself is not rendered. Only instances of a symbol element (i.e., a reference to a symbol by a <use> element) are rendered.
290 <text> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Text Content
The SVG <text> element defines a graphics element consisting of text. It's possible to apply a gradient, pattern, clipping path, mask, or filter to <text>, just like any other SVG graphics element.
291 <textPath> Element, NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsMobileBrowserCompatibility, Reference, SVG, SVG Text Content
In addition to text drawn in a straight line, SVG also includes the ability to place text along the shape of a <path> element. To specify that a block of text is to be rendered along the shape of a <path>, include the given text within a <textPath> element which includes an href attribute with a reference to a <path> element.
292 <title> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Descriptive
Each container element or graphics element in an SVG drawing can supply a <title> element containing a description string where the description is text-only. When the current SVG document fragment is rendered as SVG on visual media, <title> element is not rendered as part of the graphics. However, some user agents may, for example, display the <title> element as a tooltip. Alternate presentations are possible, both visual and aural, which display the <title> element but do not display path elements or other graphics elements. The <title> element generally improve accessibility of SVG documents
293 <tref> Element, NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsMobileBrowserCompatibility, Reference, SVG, SVG Text Content
The textual content for a <text> SVG element can be either character data directly embedded within the <text> element or the character data content of a referenced element, where the referencing is specified with a <tref> element.
294 <tspan> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Text Content
Within a <text> element, text and font properties and the current text position can be adjusted with absolute or relative coordinate values by including a <tspan> element.
295 <use> Element, Reference, SVG, SVG Graphics
The <use> element takes nodes from within the SVG document, and duplicates them somewhere else. The effect is the same as if the nodes were deeply cloned into a non-exposed DOM, and then pasted where the use element is, much like cloned template elements in HTML5. Since the cloned nodes are not exposed, care must be taken when using CSS to style a use element and its hidden descendants. CSS attributes are not guaranteed to be inherited by the hidden, cloned DOM unless you explicitly request it using CSS inheritance.
296 <view> Element, NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsExample, NeedsMobileBrowserCompatibility, Reference, SVG
A view is a defined way to view the image, like a zoom level or a detail view.
297 <vkern> Deprecated, Element, NeedsBrowserCompatibility, NeedsExample, NeedsMobileBrowserCompatibility, Reference, SVG, SVG Font
The <vkern> SVG element allows to fine-tweak the vertical distance between two glyphs in top-to-bottom fonts. This process is known as kerning.
298 Scripting SVG, Scripting, behavior, default, eventListeners, preventing, setProperty
One can override default browser behaviors with the evt.preventDefault( ) method, add eventListeners to objects with the syntax element.addEventListener(event, function, useCapture), and set element properties with syntax svgElement.style.setProperty("fill-opacity", "0.0", ""). Note the existence of all three arguments setting properties.
