Hello,
    I'm just starting to look into SVG.  Most of our data is in a CADD environment, however SVG sounds like a great alternative for sharing data through the inter/intranet.  One of the problems is that the amount of data on a plan/map can be overwhelming.  Every user tends to have their own requirements for what data they want to see.  
    Just wondering if there is a simple way to enable turning on and off different 'layers' or 'levels'.  For example, we have maps with street lines, buildings, vegetation, etc, and may want to turn off the building level.
   Also, is there any relationship between SVG and SVF, (Simple Vector Graphic), developed by SoftSource Corporation?  SVF files can be exported directly from our CADD platform, (Microstation), and seems to have the ability to turn on and off levels inherently.  Unfortunately, plugins are not free.

Thanks
