Robert O’Callahan has been working on adding features to Firefox that allow SVG effects to be applied to HTML content. He originally posted about this work back in June, discussing his experiments with making SVG’s “clip-path”, “mask”, and “filter” properties work when applied to HTML content. Last week Robert announced that this work has been added to the main Mozilla code base, and further that he has submitted his proposal to the SVG working group for standardization. For more information about these new features, including screenshots of them in action and working demos, see Robert’s post on the Web Tech weblog.
