Describe your issue:

document.createElementNS is not supported in simple-dom, so server-side rendering of SVG does not work out of the box.

Can you reproduce the issue?




var assert = require('assert')
var riot = require('riot')
var foo = require('./foo.tag')
assert.throws(function () {
  riot.render(foo, {})
}, /document.createElementNS is not a function/)
node test

On which browser/OS does the issue appear?

Node.js v5.5.0

Which version of Riot does it affect?

riot v2.4.0
