  Report Details  

Wikipedia Definition:
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML specification and file format for describing two-dimensional vector graphics, both static and dynamic (interactive or animated).

The SVG specification is an open standard that has been under development by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) since 1999. SVG images and their behaviours are defined in XML text files. This means that they can be searched, indexed, scripted and, if required, compressed. SVG files can be edited with any text editor, but specialized SVG development environments are also available. These offer a wide range of general-purpose and product specific features.

All major modern web browsers except Microsoft Internet Explorer support and render SVG markup directly.[2] To view SVG files in Internet Explorer (IE), users have to download and install a browser plugin.
