One major reason people hate IE is not because it imperfectly implements the 
standards, but because its imperfect implementations *are* considered the 
standard. In the HTML/CSS world, people who want cross-browser compatibility 
test their pages in more than one browser. We can do the same with SVGs. Use 
whatever editor you want, but test the finished image in more than one
