Iphone and HTML5 Canvas

My father-in-law wants a program to mess about with the Mandelbrot set. Ideally this should work in a browser from the iphone. I'm thinking this would be a good little project to try out using the HTML5 canvas element. Any one know how well HTML5 canvas is supported on the iphone Safari browser?

In my recent experience the HTML 5 canvas element is very well supported on the iPhone Safari browser.

The online book Dive Into HTML 5 has a good chapter on the canvas (http://diveintohtml5.org/canvas.html) and its compatibility tables suggest that the iPhone implementation is basically complete.

If you're looking for other resources, a must-have cheatsheet can be found at http://blog.nihilogic.dk/2009/02/html5-canvas-cheat-sheet.html and some cool examples of what is possible can be found at http://www.canvasdemos.com/ which also includes links to further resources.

Sounds like a fun project!
