Coordinate systems, transformations, and units

Windows Internet Explorer 9 introduced support for SVG coordinate systems, transformations, and units as specified in the Coordinate Systems, Transformations and Units module of the SVG 1.1 (Second Edition) draft specification.

These features include:

  • Units and percentages.
  • Arbitrary transformations on any element and the transform attribute.
  • The viewBox and preserveAspectRatio properties (including interaction with the overflow property).

Starting with Internet Explorer 9 there is also support for the DOM interfaces associated with SVG coordinate systems and transformations.
