Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML markup language for describing two-dimensional vector graphics. SVG is essentially to graphics what XHTML is to text. SVG is similar in scope to Adobe's proprietary Flash technology, but what distinguishes SVG from Flash is that it is a W3C recommendation (i.e., a standard) and that it is XML-based as opposed to a closed binary format. It is explicitly designed to work with other W3C standards such as CSS , DOM and SMIL . SVG Project
Building Mozilla with SVG Support The Mozilla build system, like the rest of the Mozilla codebase, is cross-platform. It uses traditional Unix-style autoconf and make tools to build the various applications (even on non-unix operating systems). Because the Mozilla codebase builds many different applications and has many options, it is complex to use and learn.
Overview Batik is a Java-based toolkit for applications or applets that want to use images in the Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) format for various purposes, such as display, generation or manipulation. The project’s ambition is to give developers a set of core modules that can be used together or individually to support specific SVG solutions. Batik SVG Toolkit
