An all-SVG site: well, If only for the 'sake of argument' and 'proof of concept'... yeah, why not?  Good idea!

But I still don't understand the original question. What do you mean with " I am wondering
about the use of a site map." → How to build a sitemap in SVG? Or, what should be the navigation-structure of the site be?

Or: what CMS supports all-SVG websites :)

My main reason is that HTML is good at its job...

* Separates meaning from style (via CSS etc)
* Very easy to hand code in an editor
* Worldwide standard

Against that backdrop, what would be the compelling reason to have a
website *exclusively* built with SVG? Obviously SVG is good for the
images, and for links in the images if that can be done, and video,
etc, but I'm not sure why one would forgo the ease and adaptability of

By the way, I'm starting to use SVG images on my websites. Often direct
from Inkscape, with the Inkscape metadata still in them. They render
well with all my browsers (but I don't use IE). See this:
