Wrong answer. SVG is hard to implement, it's only 7 months since the REC, but 
we already have *10* viewers for various platforms, at various levels of 
development. There are also 3 editors that support SVG natively, many that 
export, dozens of conversion tools, and all sorts of generation systems. 
Implementation-wise, SVG is doing very well. Much better than, say, SWF.

From what I heard, VML is already sidelined. At least, for all I can see it 
stopped shipping.

PS: Andrew, is there *any* hope that you will ever get your mailer to work?
