Description Invitatious 2006-07-18 20:09:10 UTC
The image page of an SVG image should show a link to the full-size PNG version,
for browsers that can't display SVG; most browsers with no plugins except
Firefox. I discovered this amazingly simple and overlooked deficiency of the
file format when trying to set an SVG image as my desktop background. Even in
Firefox it won't work (it doesn't handle SVG the same as a raster image). The
image link should look something like this:
  <u>Example.svg</u>‎ (<u>PNG</u>)  (9KB, MIME type: image/svg)
rather than just this:
  <u>Example.svg</u>‎  (9KB, MIME type: image/svg)
The PNG link would increase accessibility greatly for MSIE as well as most other
Also, Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects render SVG differently than Windows
browsers, as it runs on Linux servers, so this allows a wiki user to quickly and
easily check the rendering of the vectorial image.
