Hi folks,

We are working on the standardization of the mapping function for the Web 
browser of the HTML5 generation.

We suggested the W3C standardization to realize it in this summer.
That specification is named "Tiling and Layering Module for SVG".

And we published open source implementation of that today.
This implementation is based on WebKit.
