If you are wondering why hand code SVG instead of using modified inkscape

Inkscape does not support the animation tags. HTML5 promises a lot of support for SVG animation. Firefox next release will use the Mozilla engine that is being developed now. The builds already support SMIL animation .

Mozilla gets animateMotion!

Yesterday afternoon, I checked in support for the <animateMotion> SVG element, so that feature is supported in this morning’s nightly build!

The <animateMotion> element allows for much more flexibility in SVG animations. Mozilla’s nightly builds have supported animation of most SVG attributes and properties for a while now, but <animateMotion> gives authors the added ability to effortlessly animate an element to move along any arbitrary path.

Any questions?
