SVG, a language for describing graphics in XML

Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is a modularized language for describing two-dimensional vector and mixed vector/raster graphics in XML. Only a correct HTML5 parser, using the syntax defined in 8 The HTML syntax, will be able to properly interpret SVG elements when using text/html. When using application/xhtml+xml, one must use proper namespaces to ensure that SVG elements are interpreted correctly.
