SVGs coming to the mainstream?
I just noticed that the July issue of MSDN magazine (http://msdn.microsoft.com/msdnmag/issues/03/07/default.aspx) has an article on Scalable Vector Graphics (http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Overview.htm8). Given that MSDN Magazine is generally the voice of the future direction of Microsoft, this article speaks volumes about the acceptance of this standard by Microsoft. I fully anticipate SVG support in IE 7 (or whatever the corrolary is), and perhaps Longhorn. The web would be a much nicer place if there was a wider adoption of SVG.
Interesting. I know there's a long-standing branch of the Mozilla development tree where SVG is being worked on, and I understand it's pretty far along; it's quite probable that Mozilla will be shipping with SVG support by the time IE releases it.
There's just a few bitching hitches with the SVG support in Mozilla, one is the dependance on a LGPL library (unless that situation has changed and I missed it).
