If you are willing to use Microsoft's .NET platform, the SharpVectorGraphics project is already doing this.  SVG# is an open source project that is building SVG components on the .NET platform.  The core pieces are the SVG-DOM and the SVG to GDI+ Rendering engine.  Both parts are up and working, but not all of the SVG spec is supported yet.  If you want you can try it out at http://www.donxml.com/SharpVectors/CurrentBuild.aspx


Always listen to experts. They'll tell you what can't be done, and why. Then do it.

Our solution will be based on Microsoft technologies (using IIS, ASP, etc...). So I guess this means that the php solution is not applicable. My question is: What are the client side requirements of Batik?
Thanks again,

Subject: Exporting SVG to raster image
I am evaluating using SVG tools (Adobe SVG) as a possible solution to create interactive web graphical content. One of the requirements of the project that I am working on is that the user should be able to export the resultant graphic in BMP or JPEG format.
Is there a way to export SVG to raster format (BMP or JPEG)? Is this part of the spec? or it is vender implementation dependent?
Does SVG support belnding/transparent graphics?
