   RE: [xml-dev] CLAX - Client-side functionality

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I use VML.  There are some 'gotta workaround's in its event handling,
but as an XML namespace inside HTML, VML is awfully easy to use.  For
complex vector graphics, I wouldn't use it.  For basics, it's quite
durable because it is deadware and not changing with every release.


From: Rick Jelliffe [mailto:rjelliffe@allette.com.au] 
I visited the Google Maps people here in Sydney a few months ago. They
told me they browser sniffed, and used VML client-side if IE was being
used and rendered to JPEG server-side otherwise. (Something like that.)
The ability/decision to optimise delivery based on the capabilities is
very pragmatic.

Funny if Google was the main user of MS' VML :-)
