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.

No, I guess not... unless your into that 70's minimalist art that was just cubes and lines.

But it is a nice first step. and as an image format, it is much smaller than any pixel format, and easily scalable without loss of resolution. hopefully they will incorperate some sort of anti-aliasing for angles as well. Hopefully true anti-aliasing that takes into consideration the color of the layer/object/image behind it, and not just the background color of the document. TrueDoc portable fonts do that, so you get nasty jaggies if you're not careful.
