When a site is done with care and excitement you can tell. You feel it as you visit, the hum of intention.

🤔 What is SVG? 🤔

😎 Scalable Vector Graphic 😎

Simplified SVG markup.

<svg viewBox="0 0 100 100">
  <path d="M10 10H90V90H10Z"/>
  <circle cx="50" cy="50" r="40"/>
</svg>

SVG is an alternate universe version of HTML, focused on graphics instead of documents.

- Richard Westenra
