I enjoy developing websites. I have a good understanding in php,
asp, jsp, jstl, javascript, MySql. I would like to widen my knowledge in
developing better websites to enhance users' experience.

Recently I came across ''. What it can do left
me in awe - Scriptaculous Demo's

I see that the book 'Ajax and PHP',it covers the drag & drop functionality.
How in depth does your book go into

Also could you tell me a little bit more about SVG and possible
application of it?

The book's main focus in on AJAX as a technology and not on a particular framework. We have used in order to show what level of complexity an existing AJAX framework has reached. The example shows how easy you can develop some interesting user interface with an existing framework without going into the details of itself.

SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) is a language for describing 2D graphics and graphic applications in XML. It is a open standard from W3C

Currently, only Opera and Firefox natively support it, while Safari and Internet Explorer require a plugin. The most widely used plugin is Adobe SVG and its supports the 1.0 and 1.1 official specifications.

Regarding the applications that use it:
- Adobe Illustrator allows both the import and export of SVG images
- the Batik SVG Toolkit can be used to manipulate images in Java

There are also implementations for mobiles: Ikivo, Bitflash or Intesis

Oracle for example introduced a new SVG rendering module for its web applications.

I agree. Here's the link:
