It gives me hope, anyway, and I'm apparently a notorious pessimist.
I pushed the Macromedia folks at WEB 2001 to support SVG (and SMIL). I'd
love to see Microsoft support it. Those two hopes may mark me as a
ridiculous optimist, but SVG is really cool stuff.
There's been some concern expressed that SVG is not too far off from XSL-FO
(as in Formatting Objects Considered Harmful ), but I'm happy to see a
solid vector graphics-based presentation language using an XML vocabulary.
