You’ll learn the basics of both CSS 3.0 and SVG—two declarative languages that have a fairly tight relationship with HTML5, and with each other. Now that SVG is supported in all contemporary browsers with the release of Internet Explorer 9.0, this is the time to get moving on SVG. This book shows you the way.
