some of svg comes to css

On the WebKit blog, Dave Hyatt announced that WebKit now has support for CSS Transforms. This is really interesting because it takes the matrix transformation possibilities from SVG, and moves them into CSS, allowing their application on any HTML element. I’d also bet that given WebKit and Safari 3’s solid SVG support, this was relatively easy to implement, so perhaps we’ll see this in other browsers. Dojo could provide this capability with dojox.gfx in today’s browsers, but perhaps we need to find a way to leverage the CSS syntax, ala Dean Edwards’ IE 7.
