Adobe Illustrator 9 authors SVG

Adobe Systems announces Adobe® Illustrator® 9.0 with support for the March 3
draft of the W3C's Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) specification allowing
designers and developers the opportunity to:

 * Import or exported either uncompressed (i.e., normal SVG), or compressed
(using industry standard, open source gzip/ZIP compression)
 * Take advantage of rich SVG transparency
 * Embed either Type1 or TrueType fonts in the SVG file using Adobe's CEF
(Compact Embedded Font) format, which supports fully hinting and kerning of
Type1 fonts with superior compression characteristics
* Assign hyperlinks to any graphics object
* Attach JavaScript event handlers (e.g., onmouseover) to any object

See (product features),
(SVG overview) and (~
hundred page SVG tutorial).
