I have made progress on this and plan to post the simple conversion
program soon (I hope this weekend).

Currently on http://www.blackdirt.com/graphics/svg/ you can view a
sample generated file sample1.svg and the associated metafile and a JPEG
version of the same metafile.

Please comment on the output. There are more things that need to be
added and I am sure there are errors, but it is very easy to change now.
The infrastrastructure is in place and I am now reacquainted with this

One question, is there a simple way to create Ovals?
Metafiles specify these with a position width and height. To generate
that in Java, I would use:

     g.drawOval (x,y,w,h);

Again, thanks and please comment,
  Carmen Delessio
