RE: SVG primer document error

Thanks for the compliments and for pointing out the errors. I've been
keeping a little file containing  exactly these sorts of things for the next
time we actually update the SVG Primer.

First, I have to say that I really love the SVG primer document you wrote!
It's pure gold!

However, while going through it, I ran into an issue: In your examples of
how to use the <use> tag, you aren't putting the hash character everywhere
its needed, and as a result, the first several examples of using the <use>
tag don't work. It took me a little while to figure out what was needed to
correct it.


<use xlink:href="G" transform="translate(120,0)" fill="#bbb">

Should be:

<use xlink:href="#G" transform="translate(120,0)" fill="#bbb">


Same changes here:

<g stroke="black" stroke-width="2" fill="none" >

  <ellipse id="g1" cx="100" cy="100" rx="75" ry="40" />

  <use xlink:href="#g1" transform="rotate(30 100 100)"/>

  <use xlink:href="#g1" transform="rotate(60 100 100)"/>




Keep up the great work!
