Exporting to SVG

The Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) file format is a way to describe vector page objects (text, graphics, shapes, and so on) using XML. Some folks are beginning to post SVG files on the Web as an alternative to the Flash format. However, few users have the SVG plug-in required to view SVG graphics, so until Microsoft decides to ship the SVG plug-in with Internet Explorer (or some other major change occurs), there is little practical value to exporting to this format for the Web yet. On the other hand, if you are sure that your audience has the SVG plug-in or a standalone viewer that can display SVG files (perhaps your company’s sales force, for instance), then SVG files might be just the ticket.

QuarkXPress cannot export SVG files at all at this time (though Quark has said they are committed to the format). Figure 100-2 shows the various options you can set in the Export SVG dialog box. Many of these are similar to those in the HTML and PDF export dialog boxes (see Chapter 99). For more information, see Real World InDesign 2.
