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 tag:
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 the 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.

270 SVG Tutorial Intermediate, NeedsContent, NeedsHelp, NeedsUpdate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
Scalable Vector Graphics, SVG, is a W3C XML dialect to mark up graphics. It is partially implemented in Firefox, Opera, WebKit browsers, Internet Explorer and other browsers.
271 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:
272 Basic shapes Beginner, 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 parameters 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.
273 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.
274 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.
275 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.
276 Getting started Beginner, NeedsBeginnerUpdate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
Let us dive straight in with a simple example. Take a look at the following code.
277 Gradients in SVG 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.
278 Introduction Beginner, Guide, NeedsBeginnerUpdate, NeedsUpdate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial, Tutorial
SVG is an XML language, similar to XHTML, which can be used to draw vector 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.
279 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.
280 Paths Intermediate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
The <path> element is the most powerful element in the SVG library of basic shapes. It can be used it to create lines, curves, arcs and more.
281 Patterns Advanced, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
Patterns are arguably 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.
282 Positions Beginner, Coordinate systems, Coordinates, Drawing, Graphics, NeedsBeginnerUpdate, SVG, SVG:Tutorial
In this article, we examine how Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) represents the positions and sizes of objects within a drawing context, including coordinate system and what a "pixel" measurement means in a scalable context.
283 SVG Filters Tutorial SVG filters primitives
SVG allows us to use similar tools as the bitmap description language such as the use of shadow, blur effects or even merging the results of different filters. With the filter element <filter> it is possible to add these effects and later on attach them to an object.
284 SVG In HTML Introduction Intermediate, NeedsUpdate, SVG
This article and its associated example shows how to use inline SVG to provide a background picture for a form. It shows how JavaScript and CSS can be used to manipulate the picture in the same way you would script regular XHTML. Note that the example will only work in browsers that support XHTML (not HTML) and SVG integration.
285 SVG and CSS CSS, CSS:Getting_Started, Example, Guide, Intermediate, NeedsUpdate, SVG, Web
Below you'll create a simple demonstration that runs in your SVG-enabled browser.
286 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.
287 SVG image element Beginner, NeedsBeginnerUpdate, NeedsContent, NeedsUpdate, SVG, Tutorial
The SVG <image> element allows for raster images to be rendered within an SVG object.
288 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.
289 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.
