Workshop description:
The day is designed to give attendees a hands-on introduction to SVG.
There will be short introductory sessions on each aspect of SVG covered,
followed by hands-on sessions with delegates working on PCs. Attendees
will receive copies of a short Primer on SVG in addition to a workbook
for the practical sessions.
Most, but not all, delegates will have sole use of a PC. A small number
of delegates may be asked to share a PC with one other person. Because
of the nature of this workshop, the number of attendees is STRICTLY
LIMITED. We expect places to fill quickly - so early booking is STRONGLY

Full details and a flyer/registration form for the workshop may be
downloaded from
http://www.xmluk.org/slides/RAL_2001/XMLUK_SVG_meeting.pdf. Registration
costs UKL 80/55/30 (details on form).

lists that you think may be interested. Hope to see some of you at the
