Yes, I just wanted to point out that rough may vary quite a lot. For 
instance, the latest version of PalmOS reportedly has natively all the 
graphic primitives SVG Tiny needs. That would cut down the code size.

Where did you get that from, I can't find it on BitFlash's website. Are 
you sure it's not the SVG Basic implementation?

I couldn't find the numbers for Zoomon's Tiny implementation, it would 
be nice to know.

No, he says "SVG Tiny implementation and advanced 2D graphics for J2ME 
platform (...) and compact code size about 100K." 
(http://tinyline.com/svgt/index.html). The conformance page 
(http://tinyline.com/svgt/conformance.html) gives a good idea of how 
much of Tiny is supported.

Your question is fine here, the implementors list is open solely to 
implementors. It sits at public-svg-implementors@w3.org.
