Hi Dave,
I really don't think so. SVG is an XML-language which
can be embedded in XML- or HTML-documents, styled with
CSS, text is text (so it could be read and translated
by a braille- or aural browser) as opposed to bitmaps;
since this all works well together, why replace HTML
with SVG?
I would like to use XML with SVG and both with CSS2,
access the docs with XML-query language; everything is
marked up meaningfully and specifically (as opposed to
genaral HTML-tags), thus very structured and
accessible.
