Hour 2. SVG's Foundation

As SVG is an XML vocabulary, it is important that you review XML before diving into SVG. XML, like SVG, was developed by the W3C. XML was created to provide developers with a common means for structuring data apart from its display. While similar in appearance to HTML (in the sense that it uses a bracketed tag system), XML is quite different from other markup languages.

In this hour, you will learn

  • XML syntax

  • Use of elements and attributes

  • SVG document structure
