Welcome baby @ISA...

A second child on the way. Reading through baby name books for name ideas. Under "I" is "ISA", a biblical / Israeli girl's name. "Hey," I said to my wife, "we could name the baby after a perl array." She whacked me.

    I would name my kid $1. That way, when he is talking with Perl literates (hehe), there will be converations like this:

    Bob: Hey $1.
    $1: Hi. Why are you talking to yourself?
    Bob: I was talking to you, $1.
    $1: There! You did it again! I am $<, you are Bob.
    Bob: Oh, I see the $!. Sorry.
    $1: No problem, good thing $. didn't build up any more than it did.

    Ahhh, fun with ambiguous antecedents.

      Wouldn't $0 be better suited for that?

[Discipulus]: so every library (js) to sdelect and modify the id parameters can be good.
[Discipulus]: I never understood something: I can on the fly modify the XML structure of the SVG using for example XML::Twig ?
[Corion]: Discipulus: If you want to rewrite the SVG, then yes, something like XML::Twig should be enough. I would try to not modify the SVG but only modify the display, but so far I haven't convinced IE to change the style...
Corion gives up
[Discipulus]: ah! so you mean if i need a static image i can use Twig, if on the fly better css selector and mody attrs (jquery?), rigth?
[LanX]: not sure what you guys are taking about, but a DOM manipulation in JS shouldn't be difficult
[Corion]: Discipulus: Yeah, that's what I would try (but so far, I can't even change the colors manually in the SVG, which is why I gave up ;) )
Discipulus bad sign..
