Aloha !
 We are about to convert one of our tools over to the new SVG standard,. It 
was originally designed with VML quite a wile ago. (yes, a LONG time ago)
 In doing research to do the conversion, one thing that is causing us to 
stop in our tracks is the lack of support for Z-index.  
 Yes, I fully understand the "painting" concept of first on, on the bottom. 
 But that seems a limited concept considering all of the millions of types 
of potential applications out there.
 For instance, our tool is a sort of user driven dynamic CAD tool.  we 
place object on the screen, but there are times where we need to grab an 
object and move it up a layer, or move it to the front of other objects, or 
move it behind other objects -  All on the fly.  Using VML this was easily 
done with Z-index.  I am somewhat stunned that this appears to have been 
ignored with SVG.
 Are there plans to correct this flaw ?
 Or am i missing something where this same functionality exists  ?

Have a computer you are no longer using ? Don't Recycle(Scrap) It ! Donate 
it !
"Recycled" computers, even working ones, are melted down for scrap metal !
Donate your computer to us and we can refurbish it and get it to someone in 
just as we have done for over 900 computers so far.
See our website for more details : www.HawaiianHope.org  

We can run the space shuttle on only 500k of RAM, but we can't make a cell 
phone battery to last more than 24 hours ?  

Think about IT.
