Hopefully you don't mean SVG. There is a good comparison of .SWF and SVG at: http://www.carto.net/papers/svg/comparison_flash_svg.html I think the comparison shows that SVG is more naturally mapped to certain sorts of application, it is far from just a Flash replacement. I still don't see why FOP would ever serve up plain SVG, it has trouble enough getting more than a trivial amount of SVG integrated with FO. SVG is here today as a medium for static graphics, it will be here tomorrow as a web medium if browsers ever support it natively (in addition to other forms of XML). In IE today you need workarounds to use SVG with other namespaces, such as: http://www.jenitennison.com/xslt/utilities/svg-utils.html Even as awkward as that is, it shows the potential. XHTML and SVG, XForms and SVG... It would be great if there were a widely distributed browser with good support for multiple namespaces inline.
