Steps to reproduce

Using animateMotion in SVG is a SVG 1.1 recommendation as per However, while Firefox, Safari, and Chrome support this element and its related sub-elements, Edge and IE11 do not.


<svg width="120" height="120" viewBox="0 0 120 120"
xmlns="" version="1.1"

<!-- Draw the outline of the motion path in grey, along
with 2 small circles at key points -->
<path d="M10,110 A120,120 -45 0,1 110 10 A120,120 -45 0,1 10,110"
stroke="lightgrey" stroke-width="2"
fill="none" id="theMotionPath"/>
<circle cx="10" cy="110" r="3" fill="lightgrey" />
<circle cx="110" cy="10" r="3" fill="lightgrey" />

<!-- Red circle which will be moved along the motion path. -->
<circle cx="" cy="" r="5" fill="red">

<!-- Define the motion path animation -->
<animateMotion dur="6s" repeatCount="indefinite">
  <mpath xlink:href="#theMotionPath"/>
