Does Google Chrome support SVG transparency? My SVG logo renders correctly in Firefox, but in Google Chrome it has a white background.

You can check it out at it is the main "Aaron Chiles" logo.

According to Wikipedia, "Browsers based on WebKit (such as Apple's Safari, Google Chrome, and The Omni Group's OmniWeb) have incomplete support for the SVG 1.1 Full specification since 2006.[42] This includes Safari 3.0 and later (included with Mac OS X v10.5 and Mac OS X v10.4.11) as well as Mobile Safari as of iPhone OS 2.1."

I use Safari 4.0.02 and I see a white background on your logo. Why not use a PNG image in this instance? If a clear background is what you want, I think a PNG will be the best solution.

Thanks for the answer! I just wanted to try something new with HTML5. I could even just use Arial font instead of any graphic at all.

A quick google finds this which suggests it's a recent regression in Webkit (i.e. worked in Safari 4.01, broken in 4.02). Which I think means it's not your fault :)
