Interview with Internet Explorer’s Patrick Dengler

To provide a little insight into the current state of SVG implementations, I put out an open call to implementers for email interviews. For the first in this series of interviews, I chatted with one of the newest implementers of SVG, Patrick Dengler of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer team. He is the Senior Program Manager of the group responsible for putting SVG into IE9.

We exchanged questions and answers over email, just before last week’s SVG Working Group face-to-face meeting. I asked Patrick some questions, and he asked me some.

Update: A couple people were confused by the interleaved format, with Patrick and I taking turns asking questions. To try to make it clearer, I have removed the attribute labels where the speaker does not change, and emphasized the questions. I hope that helps!
