SVG - Scalable Vector Graphics
What is SVG?
Scalable Vector Graphics is an XML grammar defined by the World Wide Web
Consortium (W3C). It defines a language for describing two-dimensional
graphics, consisting of vector graphic shapes, images and text. SVG builds
on existing technologies such as XML, Cascading Style Sheets (CSS),
implemented in Mozilla. So, the SVG in Mozilla project has quite a head
start compared to coding SVG viewer from scratch.
As it seems that SVG support is Mozilla is limited to beta windows
versions, this may be of help:
Batik is a Java based toolkit for applications that want to use images in
the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format for various purposes, such as
viewing, generation or manipulation
As long as we are unaware of the degree to which the
right to human dignity has been denied us in our own
childhood, it is anything but easy to truly concede
that right to our children, however sincerely we may
wish to do so.
