Re: Dojinshi & Accessibility was: A new Semantic Web logo?

As a result of the mail discussion, and thanking the input from Doug, I
have changed all the SVG files. All of the SVG files now include:

- a title for the logo (using the <title> element)
- a description of the visual element of the logo (using the <desc> element)
- a portion of RDF, containing the same information but using DC terms,
plus infos on the date and copyright
- text elements as proposed by Doug, and using fill opacity to make it
invisible on the screen

At some point in the future the SVG players will be able to manage @font
properly, in which case we will have to change the SVG content and
possibly get rid of this hack. But, I think, this will do in the meantime.

Thanks to all involved...
