The W3C standards body yesterday issued Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 1.1 and Mobile SVG Profiles as official W3C Recommendations. SVG is a standard for scaleable graphics that can be displayed at full resolution on any size display. The standard supports animation and interactivity, and features small file sizes that download quickly. SVG 1.1 separates SVG capabilities into reusable building blocks, and SVG Mobile re-combines them in a way optimized for mobile devices. SVG Mobile consists of two profiles: SVG Tiny, aimed at cell phones, and SVG Basic, for handheld computers. Commercial services using SVG Mobile are now being deployed.
