As it turns out, as revealed during the jQuery 1.6 roadmap discussion, we're having a hard time finding people that care about implementing the changes necessary to fix SVG support in jQuery - and in a way that continues to work fast.

I'm going to be closing this (and other SVG-related tickets) as "patchwelcome". If you're interested, and have a pull request, please feel free to re-open.

This ticket is being changed to wontfix since it isn't our intent to support SVG in any first-class way. The wontfix page will be updated shortly.

jQuery is an HTML DOM library and despite the fact that SVG uses a similar XML syntax it has different semantics. If you want to manipulate SVG a library like Raphael is more appropriate.

That said, we will still attempt to address issues *related* to SVG that appear outside the SVG document itself, such as events that bubble into HTML-land like #13180.

Please follow the  bug reporting guidlines and use  jsFiddle when providing test cases and demonstrations instead of pasting the code in the ticket.
