This is a new, additional resource for SVG. The specification is an open standard that has been under development by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) since 1999.
The uptake of SVG has been slow, but what about the promise SVG originally had when it was assumed all browsers would support it? There's no doubt that incomplete, cross browser support is less of an issue with more people and products supporting it every day.
This area of the website aims to add to this belated enthusiasm and increase the usage of SVG.
