Hi;

AFAIK, it should be possible to change the stack order for example by
manipulating the CSS Z-index with ECMA-script. I don't know which viewer
implements this.

check:

http://www.mecxpert.de/svg/swap.html
"Meanwhile the only way to change the drawing order is to change the
elements position in the DOM."

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Requirements
http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-SVGReq#DRLayeringGrouping
"c.Explicit layering: objects or collections of objects can be assigned
an explicit z-index value, which takes precedence over the implicit
bottom-to-top drawing order."

Working Draft 11-February-1999
5 SVG Rendering Model
http://www.w3.org/TR/1999/WD-SVG-19990211/render.html
"5.2 Rendering Properties
'z-index' 
Value:   auto | <integer> | inherit 
Initial:   auto 
Applies to:  all elements 
Inherited:   no 
Percentages:  N/A 
Media:  visual 
"

in
Appendix L: Property Index of the current spec
http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/propidx.html
I can't find z-index

Can anyone clarify this?

Tobi
