Nice excercise.  I had asked for this before and am glad this is
possible now.  And good that Firefox can display it out of the box!

However, I can not pretend to understand it.  I looked at div.svg and
it is not immediately obvious where div gets most of its content
(apart from top and bottom stuff), for example where does it gets <p>

I think it would be best linked from the reference matter for each of
the components.   And there could be different views of the stuff,
some of them filtering out the underlying plumbing and only show the
nice, shiny surface.

Anyway, I think it would be worth showing in Victoria and see what
people think.

best, chw
