Subject: Re: [OpenLayers-Dev] OpenLayers & SVG Web
I know that OpenLayers has support for vector drawing in all the browsers,
I have used a lot this feature and it's working really well.
What I wanted to do was just to experiment with SVG Web as well as get an
insight on the internals of OpenLayers.
As you can see on my webpage, the port of svg web to openlayers is not
really usable at the moment (missing features + speed issue).
I know that introducing a dependency upon an external library is not really
great, but it could be nice to have a full SVG support across all browsers.
This could allow us to use specific SVG features (SMIL, filters, etc..) or
to use SVG art on openlayers maps.
What do you think about it?
