SVG on IE via Silverlight Revisited

Toine de Greef: This allowed some interesting techniques like: - SVG on Internet Explorer, without the ASV (Adobe SVG Viewer) plugin required

Cool.  SVG to Silverlight via XSLT.  But, embedding in HTML using comments?  I think I can improve upon that.

Demo: Toucan.  Rendered using native SVG on recent Gecko, Opera, and Webkit based browsers.  Converted to Silverlight and rendered (after a brief delay) using client side XSLT on MSIE browsers with Silverlight.

This technique may also be useful for people who want to embed Silverlight into Webpages, which apparently isn’t so easy to do.

Demo: Raven — currently MSIE/Silverlight only, but clearly the reverse is also possible.
