SVG support in Safari

Monday, February 10th, 2003

Hey cool. If you are using safari, you may be able to see this image.
It's a compressed SVG image. I just tried it with an old SVG file I had lying around. Adobe Illustrator can save line art in this format, which saves tons of space for huge images.
Unfortunately, you can't use them in inline IMG tags (I just tried). Oh well.
