As a web developer and intranet manager I believe we need a way of drawing 
vector images. I also think that a simple solution would be to use the way 
you define client side image maps.
I've included a sample page. Please comment on this idea.

<H1>Example Vector Image</H1>
<VECTOR NAME="VectorImg1" WIDTH="200" HEIGHT="200" BORDER="1" 
	<SHAPE TYPE="RECT" COORDS="0,0,200,200" LINE="#FF0000" FILL="0"> 
       (This creates a transparent  box around the edge)
	<SHAPE TYPE="CIRC" COORDS="100,100,40" LINE="#00FF00" FILL="1" 
FILLCOLOR="#00FF66">          (This creates a filled circle with center 
(100,100) and a radius of 40)
	<SHAPE TYPE="OVAL" COORDS="100,100,20,50" LINE="#0000FF" FILL="1" 
FILLCOLOR="#7700FF">    (This creates a oval with a center of (100,100) and 
a horizontal radius of 20 and a vertical radius of 50)
	<SHAPE TYPE="POLY" COORDS="0,0,10,30,70,10" LINE="#FF00FF" FILL="0"> 
 (This polygon has it's points at (0,0) (10,30) (70,10) this type would 
always create closed polygon by connecting the last point to the first)
	<SHAPE TYPE="LINE" COORDS="45,20,80,10" LINE="#FFFF00">         (This 
draws a line from (45,20) to (80,10) there is no fill element because it is 
an open shape)
