I see you've added this to the Wiki - great!

FYI, I have a couple of nearly finished SVG articles, written by David Storey, which he would not mind us using as part of this course. I'll send them to you in a minute Jeremie.

I also think we can use the SVG Primer by David Dailey [1] as a good starting point. The tutorial available on the MDN [2] is also a good source of inspiration. Doug, what do you think? Is there something missing?
