Description Jeff Bonham 2005-03-10 19:17:51 UTC
SVG is an open data format for representing vector images.  It does not have  
mainstream rendering support in web browsers, but should be enabled for upload on  
commons in order to store the SVG source files for many PNG images. 
Related to bug 667.
Comment 1 Brion Vibber 2005-03-10 22:22:48 UTC
SVG, like HTML, supports dynamic scripting. Common plug-ins allow executing 
JavaScript in the browser context. SVG is disabled pending a safety filter.

Comment 5 Josh Cogliati 2005-08-22 03:29:52 UTC
There is a SVG sanitizer available at but, Brion says that it
is insufficient but has not looked at the new version uploaded in late March
that fixes the event hooks.
