Hour 3. Viewing SVG > Understanding Limitations

Understanding Limitations

The means of viewing SVG content is often through using a browser accompanied by a viewer plug-in. Although this obviously extends the potential audience for viewing your content, plug-in viewing (of any content, SVG or otherwise) does not offer the same experience as native viewing. Each plug-in has its limitations, and, as you will see from examples in this book and from your own experience, they may limit the possibilities of what your SVG content can do.

For instance, many of the viewers in distribution over the past two years have supported only a portion of the W3C specification. This was due, in large part, to the state of flux of the specification, as well as to the need for timeliness in releasing a product for developers' use. This does mean, however, that what works in one viewer may not work in another.
