Who or what is SVG?

Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 23 December 2002
SVG Stands for Scalable Vector Graphics.  It's an XML based graphic description language, with the graphics specified in a vector (i.e. lines, circles, characters, etc) format rather than in a raster or pixewl by pixel format, so SVG file can contain a lot of information in a few bytes, and can be used to produce images of different widths and heights from the same source.

Here's a piece of SVG which draws a green box in a white frame, and adds the text "SVG Rools?"

<svg width="400" height="400">
<rect x="30" y="30" width="340" height="340"
style="stroke: black; fill: #339933" />
<text x="60" y="250" style="font-size: 40pt">SVG Rools?</text>
