    This is definitely ideal. Unfortunately, the app I'm working on needs to support IE8... which doesn't play nice with inline SVGs.

    We've also discovered that IE8 doesn't play nicely with pseudo-elements either. Namely, once a pseudo-element is drawn, it will never be repainted. Thus, hover effects aren't applied to icons from an icon font.

    Our workaround is to use an angular directive that creates normal HTML elements from icons in an icon font. In the meantime, I just use the normal icon font when building prototypes.

      Cool, that makes sense. Thankfully I don't have to support IE8 or really 9, although I do make sure everything works in 9.
