We need a browser that has Scalable Vector Graphics and Mozilla is the one that 
it must be.  It's up to us and it has to be in sometime after 5.0 gets out.

We need a place to say how important this is.  If we don't have a bug we can't 
vote for it.

If anyone looking at this bug doesn't know what it is check it out at

I filed a bug on this a while back - it got pushed to "remind" which is sorta 
odd. (http://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=17679)

Is this a [meta] bug of some sort?

FYI, see bug 80142 -- a new implementation of SVG
for mozilla has popped up and is looking both
functional and pretty.


Bug 80142 is concentrating on getting this new code,
which currently exists as a set of floating zips and
patches, into CVS.

(And that bug alone has 25 votes to go with the 34 on
this bug... perhaps it could do with some more, hint hint)
Depends on: 80142

Partial SVG support is now checked into the trunk, and being actively worked on.
We have a SVG component in bugzilla for bugs that's used, and we even have our
own little IRC channel: #svg, at irc.mozilla.org

It's not on in the default builds though.  I'd say this is fixed, we're finally
making good progress!

Is there a bug covering general SVG support/tracking progress? I guess the SVG
implementation is nowhere near complete so perhaps it's not worth doing it, but...

In particular I tried the W3C SVG test at http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/Test
and only found one or two of the test files that rendered at all on the
2001121303 build, and those were incorrect... ;) I considered filing a bug re.
that particular test but then figured there probably was one even though I
couldn't find it...

(Here is one of those that renders:

As I said, it's *not* yet enabled on trunk builds / nightlies, unless you build
by yourself. That's why it didn't work for you.  :-)

You don't need a tracking bug for this, because, again, as I said: there's a
component for which you can query all reported bugs if you are interested. Go to
bugzilla's query page and choose:  Product: Browser,  Component:  SVG
