Sample text

The insertBefore() method is used to ensure that the new group will have the same position in the DOM tree as the element it is replacing. A nested group will hold the original element, but will prevent it from inheriting the fill style. Finally, a element duplicates the element, but cancels out the stroke style so that it only inherits fill styles. It is inserted into the main group as the last child (“before” nothing), so that it will be drawn on top of the version with no fill. The result of running the script (in a browser that does not support paint-order) is shown in Figure 2-6.

Unlike in CSS layout, a two-dimensional coordinate system transformation would not create a new stacking context for SVG. This reflects the fact that transformations are a normal part of SVG layout. Again, replacing the functionality of z-index with JavaScript would require a complex polyfill that scanned all stylesheets and calculated the final cascaded value for each element. It only gets more complicated from there: because most browsers do support the z-index property on elements controlled by CSS layout, you cannot use the @supports rule or simple JavaScript checks to determine whether it is supported for SVG.
