Dean, Chris,

Thank you both for your replies.  I look forward to seeing what various SVG
viewers have to offer.

SVG is exciting in itself, but I am particularly interested in the
functionality/availability of viewers for mobile environments/platforms.
SVG appears to be an efficient means of transporting grapical information to
environments where bandwidth and storage capacity are at a premium.

Paul, Chris,

The Pocket SVG viewer runs in the emulator, which I believe is
a free (although large) download from Microsoft.

We plan to put our testsuite results in the implementation report
for the next testsuite release (if there is room).

We are toying with ideas for the Java viewer - maybe stripping it
down to support a well defined subset of SVG 1.0 - but resources
are *really* tight at CSIRO (people-wise).
