Hi, David-

Yes, it's unfortunate that Microsoft doesn't care about supporting
standards. That being said, do you have any power to make them include SVG
support? Can you force them to implement it natively in IE, or distribute a
viewer?

If not, then I still don't see how this affects your assertion that there
should be an image-only SVG format.

Doug
