@andy_unleash Right. I don’t see why you would want to go that route. IE9+ supports SVG with `` tag. When it comes to those who don’t support it, you can change out the extension to png. Doing it your way, I assume, would cause more http requests to grab those SVG images.
The reason I want to go PNG first is purely from a noscript perspective.
You’re right about HTTP requests and additional loading which is a concern of mine too. I just can’t see an alternative option.
