Scalable Vector Graphics In Mozilla!

Saturday June 5th, 1999

Jeremy Lea has started an SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) project for Mozilla. Click here to read his post in the layout newsgroup. We have his current screenshot here of a simple SVG file displaying in Mozilla.

He's looking for help, so please contact him if you are interesting in getting SVG into Mozilla.

Two questions...

1)It looked to me that the way to imbed an SVG image in HTML was through an <object></object> tag, with an <img> tag in between. But browsers that understand <object> simply ignore what's in between the opening and closing tags? so if you've got a browser that understands <object> but can't render an .SVG, won't there just be big ugly empty boxes everywhere? (or am I total out to lunch here)

2) Is there going to be a .CGM to .SVG conversion tool? (hello Corel... you're on the .svg comitee...) This would be nice... since the most obvious use for this would be to render company logos, which can get very complex, and to sit there and try and hand code this <http://www.improv.ca/graphics/willy.gif> which is a relatively simple logo (for the Canadian Improv Games), would be a pain in the butt (at least for me)
