This Open Source library fills a gaping void in the support for SVG/SVL (i.e. graphics) within Browsers.
SVG is supported by popular browsers (IE, FF, Chrome, etc) but presents difficulties since it is difficult to use. Raphael solves this problem. It is easier to learn and use than, for instance, Flash.
Because is quite recent (late 2008) so knowledge of it just beginning to spread. However, am sure that it will see wide spread usage. So deleting a description to so early in its life seems counter-productive.
I should note that my only connection with Raphael is as a very happy user.
As time permits, I attempt to correct the perceived defects in this article.
