baseVal attribute | baseVal property
Gets or sets the base value of the given attribute before any animations are applied.
<element baseVal="p" ... >
p = object.baseVal
The base value of the given attribute before any animations are applied. (See the following Remarks section.)
Windows Internet Explorer 9 supports script-based SVG animation but it does not support declarative-based SVG animation. As a result, the animVal property contains the same value as the baseVal property.
