Sure, but once you have messed with the viewbox, you still have to make 
the newly enlarged details and text visible (for progressive 
disclosure), and that's that part I was thinking about.  Still, 
sometimes a stylesheet change might not be enough and you would want to 
add or subtract text using DOM manipulation, like you said.

Ooh, when did the plugin start working with Moz?  I haven't worked with 
svg for maybe 6 months, and at that time it was still incompatible. 
When I saw that Roger, the OP, specifically mentioned the plugin, I 
assumed that he was thinking of IE.  Glad to hear it isn't so anymore.
