Mike Fortress explains animation with
<svg> with a specific example involving charts on Sprout.
It's funny how SVG has all these great features like gradients and filters and animations that we have in CSS, but the syntax is so different. I think it would be cool if there was some kind of converter that would let us target SVG parts with CSS selectors, apply things like gradients, filters, and animations, and it would convert it into the SVG format that actually works. Or maybe I'm just lazy.
