Hi,

This was brought up before. It would be great to use an SVG paint server for CSS images, just with the url() function.

element() (with its current definition) can just reference paint servers in the same document. The FXTF resolved to treat fragments on URIs as resources for the url() function[1]. Media Fragments will be supported with image().

It would make a lot sense to allow resource to be paint servers on url(): background-image: url(resources.svg#pattern);

* It is already the case for 'fill' and 'stroke' in SVG
* Users may have these expectations (especially with SVG background)
* another step of harmonization between SVG and CSS
* 'fill' and 'stroke' can support CSS Images directly

Greetings,
Dirk
