Questions about Altbrowser and SVG

In my opinion, Chipp's advice to go for Flash to do your animations is
undoubtedly the best solution for various reasons. However, it is perfectly
possible to do animations in SVG using a SINGLE SCRIPT, not a succession of
scripts as you had in mind. (In fact, it probably wouldn't work as a
succession of scripts.) A fly in the ointment regarding practicality is
the fact that SVG is relatively new, and there aren't many editors around
that would enable you to create your animations easily. And writing the
script directly for an animated vector graphic ain't easy either.

Your Flash animations would be shown in the altBrowser exactly the same as
they are in the Internet Explorer (without IE's decorations of course).
