Actually, I think that illustration is necessary at some level but not
sufficient. Try reading the SVG specification (which is heavily illustrated)
and the HTML specification, which isn't, although it is in fact much simpler.
For someone who doesn't read like the smartest 1% of the world I know which
one I find more accessible.

  latter will continue.
