[Shields activated.] Instead of persisting with the Sisyphus work of developing native SVG support in Mozilla, and maintaining it as SVG evolves, I suggest that efforts are placed in co-operation with Adobe as to make their excellent SVG plug-in Mozilla compliant. Obviously, Adobe _are_ already working towards this goal as indicated by several remarks about Netscape 6 in the chapter "Known Problems with Adobe SVG Viewer / Netscape" of this document: Adobe® SVG Viewer for Windows, Release Notes, Version 3.0 (Build 76) < http://www.adobe.com/svg/indepth/pdfs/ReadMewin.pdf > [I probably don't know which jar I've opened now ;-]
1) Adobe SVG does not work on Unix (excepting Mac OSX, where it presumably uses Carbon) 2) Are there any other SVG impls out there? SVG can't even exit CR till there are two independent implementations.... 3) The people working on native svg and the people who would usefully contribute to the adobe plugin working with mozilla are nearly nonintersecting sets.
Correction on #2. There _are_ other SVG impls out there, and SVG _has_ exited CR. Partial correction on #1 -- there is a very beta version of the SVG plugin for Linux only (Solaris users need not apply) that works with Netscape 6.1 only.
We still wouldn't be able to use the Adobe implementation for things like the SVG DOM or inline SVG (unless Adobe makes an implementation especially for mozilla)
Adobe's SVG plugin does not work on Win2000 either with r.9.8 (2002-0204).
Marking as invalid, since it won't work for most platforms.
