Is the SVG support in Firefox 3.5.3 on Linux spotty? I only ask because I can see this webpage just fine: , but I was trying some svg experiments locally, and couldn't get it to render. So, I c&p'd the code from the aforementioned website into a file that I uploaded to my personal website. It wouldn't render on that page either, but it will still render on the original page.

If anyone has any idea, I'd appreciate hearing them.

  • also, you might need to install an access component in Linux as its not default: app-get search svg danwellman over 7 years ago

I wrote on fonts in SVG, which links to this chart of SVG support on various browsers. It doesnt matter if it is on Linux or Windows (unless you are rendering text using a win-specific font and not using the fonts defined in SVG).

I asked about this on twitter, hence the replies as comments as these are not my answers, but maybe a suggestion will help :)
