Then why do they use VML in their IE-only pages?  (I guess most people 
using VML don't realise they are doing so, because their authoring tool 
doesn't expose them to the actual code.  Note that Microsoft's use of 
VML is technically illegal, as they use it with a text/html media type, 
which shouldn't allow namespaces.  VML is the, deprecated, predecessor 
to SVG.)


Actually, it is the vector that is the most important feature, 
scalability tends to drop out naturally from that.
