"Vietnam" here refers to the Vietnam War and how it was deemed "un-winnable"; I'm using it because now that we've done i18n, we're constantly finding bugs, breaking things, and adding overhead.

comment JavaScript embedded in SVG blocked when displayed in iOS?

comment JavaScript embedded in SVG blocked when displayed in iOS?
@AlexWayne seems like a perfectly reasonable idea, if the script relates directly to the SVG, e.g. animation. Here's a good question and answer that explains applicable scenarios.

@ShadowWizard fine, fine - next build will have your better error message :) I'm always a bit reluctant to add text for one-offs, due to translation overhead.
