Media Queries within SVG

Tim Kadlec

One aspect in particular that is getting quite a bit of attention is the ability to embed media queries within SVG files. With embedded media queries you could apply an id or class to the portion of SVG that generates the slogan and then embed a media query within the SVG file that hides the slogan when the logo is below a certain size. Essentially something like this: @media screen and (max-width: 200px) { #slogan{ display: none; } }.

A little while back, I mentioned I was doing some research for the book about how images are downloaded when media queries are involved. The HTML and CSS are below: #test2 { background-image:url('images/test2.png'); width:200px; height:75px; } @media all and (max-width: 600px) { #test2 {display:none;} }. The HTML and CSS are below: #test3 div { background-image:url('images/test3.png'); width:200px; height:75px; } @media all and (max-width: 600px) { #test3 { display:none; } }.

Media Query & Asset Downloading Tests

Tim Kadlec

A few people—including Jason Grigsby , Greg Rewis and Aaron Mentele —have done some excellent testing about how images are downloaded when media queries are involved. However, setting background images within a media query and then overriding seems to work pretty well ( test 5 ). When you’re building a responsive site, there will undoubtedly be times when you need to change a background image, or when you need to hide an image for a specific resolution range.
