I have a bunch of bookmarks in a folder on my desktop. It's terribly a terribly haphazard mash of links, text files, screen shots, and other sundries that I plan to do something with one of these days. I'm realizing that many of these otherwise useless idea seeds are just waiting to germinate into a blog post. Now that I'm done rambling (and creating botanical analogies) …
I love these SVG patterns. It's like the Subtle Patterns of SVG patterns. I need to find more opportunities to use these. When using SVG you should consider support as it's one of those newer concepts that isn't always supported.
I like to use Modernizr for writing styles targeted to a browser's support
of technology. If you add a build of Modernizr to your site that performs the
SVG test, then if SVG is supported you'll get an
svg class on your HTML
element, or a
no-svg class if it's not. Then you could write your CSS to
support both cases like so.

The second selector will apply to a page loaded on a browser without SVG support. Meanwhile, it's ignored for most other cases where SVG is supported.
