   RE: [xml-dev] CSS Scoping in XML Namespaces

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

Understood.   Yes, VML still ships.  The requirement 
here is that the graphics have to be native to the 
browser, not an add-in or a plug-in.  For diagramming 
without much in the way of animation, VML is sufficient. 
If or when they kill off VML, from what I've seen of 
Avalon, the transforms will be drop dead easy.

Otherwise, I would use X3D and be having a lot of fun. ;-) 

When the X3D shaders become available, that will be 
big fun.  Overkill for ERDs, yes, but an entertaining 
interface is not evil.

I have no idea how much CSS VML used. Is VML even still shipped with IE 
6? MS killed it off long before they even started talking about their 
new stuff. I don't know what your constraints are, but Adobe's SVG 
Viewer can be used from IE as a binary behaviour, meaning you can use 
SVG directly in HTML. As always with binary behaviours, the hooking up 
is terribly ugly, but it's doable. You'll get something that can do much 
more than VML-in-HTML but using roughly the same approach.
