8012RE: [svg-developers] Adobe SVG Viewer with XP IE?
- Nov 1, 2001Summary: Sure, you can see Adobe's SVG renderer in IE/WinXP. Try it! 8)
IE6/Win and IE5.5sp2/Win dropped support for Netscape Plugins. As Peter
noted, ActiveX Controls work in that browser, same as before.
(Netscape Plugins work on WinXP in Netscape, Opera, and other browsers.)

An ActiveX Control can often guess which renderer to invoke from the EMBED
tag. I've seen many cases where it fails, however. This is why the nested
OBJECT/EMBED structure is more often used. (Where the EMBED specifies the
MIME type of the data, the OBJECT tag specifies the renderer itself, along
with minimum versions necessary.)
Note that the HTML 4.0 definition of "OBJECT" is a bit different from what
has been implemented in browsers over the last few years... same word,

Flash Player 5.
Many people do install Shockwave and Acrobat after that, however...
according to Media Metrix, they're both at about 70% consumer viewership.
(That's for overall viewership of DCR or PDF files... different versions
have different subsets of that overall viewership.)

could offer wider viewership and greater interactivity.
Has anyone done performance benchmarking on the online SVG->SWF conversions
of Saxess, the Python implementation, other...?
