A lot depends on what you wish your audience's browsers to accomplish. Many pieces which consist of "graphics tables and maps" can be handled by the drawing and scripting capabilities common to your audience's various browsers. As the project becomes more ambitious, though, it may push that common intersection of the different proprietary browser brands. I don't know that anyone has bothered updating the common conformance testing of the current most-popular browsers, but regardless of brand, over 90% of them already have a predictable renderer with screaming logic: http://www.adobe.com/products/player_census/flashplayer/version_penetration.html jd/adobe ________________________________________ From: thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org [thelist-bounces at lists.evolt.org] On Behalf Of Stefan Schwarzer [st.schwarzer at geois.de] Sent: Monday, December 15, 2008 4:50 AM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: [thelist] Where is SVG? And where stands SVG in comparison to Flash? Hi there, a couple of years ago we developed some applications based on SVG. Then, it was getting quiet on our side, and on Adobe's side Flash replaced SVG. Now, we're thinking again about some dynamic, interactive content development using graphics, tables and maps, and I wonder in which direction we should head. SVG & OpenSource, or Flash & Proprietary. We've always used opensource software. But I wonder if the level of interactivity between the different elements mentioned above can really be achieved efficiently with SVG. Thanks for any suggestions and thoughts!
