I would like to make the SVG that I export for this site as good as possible, but sometimes I don't know which features can be used or not. I guess that some very specific Adobe features like gradient mesh or filters cannot be used in SVG. But I may use transparency or blur or shadow effect if I'm sure it can be compatible for SVG user.

I am not an Illustrator user, but in my understanding, for some
unsupported features (and this goes both way: Illustrator features not
supported by SVG but also SVG features not implemented by Illustrator),
it will create them as embedded bitmaps.
I do not know about a such a table of Illustrator features not supported
by the SVG standard, but I think it would be useful.
In my experience, the SVG files produced by Illustrator are quite bad:
they are bloated, will contain a lot of useless junk in "<i:pgf>" chunks
which have to be cleaned manually (think 2MB versus 20KB).

Indeed, it is broken for me too.
