Firefox3's SVG Demo

I got a presentation on the future of firefox from the web

The slide introduced the coming features of firefox3 such as SVG, canvas3D, Offline and XMLHttpRequest++.

Actually, I am not sure that all features can be added to firefox3 because some features are very experimental. Anyway, I think SVG is very interesting among the new features.

SVG is a standard technology to create vector graphics on the web and even can be embedded in HTML pages

You can see a SVG demo using the foreignobject on the following page.

What is the foreignobject?

The foreignobject can make any HTML tag to embed into SVG. It means that HTML tag can be worked as a primitive of SVG such as line, circle, and rectangle. So you can apply transform effect on HTML tag.

I think that SVG will be able to change a way of rendering the web in future.

This is the second summit between the two Koreas.

During the summit, Two leaders had several talks about Korean peace, economic investment, reunification on North Korea.

I wish that the two Koreas could archive piece and prosperity on the Korean Peninsula.
