Inkscape can do that, but I've been told Illustrator is not able to export nested layers (sublayers) with attribute display="none". Is this true? If so, how can I have all my hidden sublayers be exported as svg elements with display="none"?

    Welcome smohadjer. This appears to be more of a technical support question and would probably be better served by asking Adobe. – Scott Oct 3 '13 at 19:16
  • As far as I know Adobe has no dedicated technical support site for its products. All I could find online is their community forum in which I have posted the same question, but so far no answer there either: forums.adobe.com/message/5734750#5734750 – smohadjer Oct 3 '13 at 22:18
  • Whenever I need to do specific code things to SVG exported from Illustrator, I almost always end up doing it in a text editor with find/replace and regular expressions. Illustrator's SVG support isn't very good, Adobe treat it as an afterthought. You could give layers or groups you want hidden a name ending with say --hidden then find/change --hidden"(.*)style=" for "\1style="display:none; or something like that. – user568458 Oct 8 '13 at 12:40
