Microsoft Joins SVG Working Group
In the hell-hath-frozen-over department, Microsoft has joined the W3C’s SVG Working Group.
As a little history, at one time there were two vector graphics formats competing for W3C standardization - PGML, which was supported by Adobe and Sun, and VML, which was supported by Microsoft. SVG emerged as the W3C-backed standard, which combined elements of both PGML and VML. This wasn’t satisfactory to Microsoft, and today the only browser that doesn’t support SVG to some degree is Internet Explorer.
