SVG Filters in CSS

You’ll probably need to go to my blog site to see this post properly. And you’ll need to be using Firefox 3.5 or later.

An SVG in CSS Filter Experiment

I’ve begun to experiment with a Firefox feature that allows SVG filters to be applied to HTML elements via CSS. There don’t seem to be many examples out on the web. This example wraps a <div> around some content to which the Inkscape Alpha Engraving B filter has been applied. Try selecting some text.

Work has begun by the W3C FX working group to standardize using SVG filters in CSS.
