Export as 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. But despite acceptance from the W3C and software developers, like Adobe, its use is not widespread. 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 you can use InDesign’s ability to export to SVG.

Neither PageMaker nor QuarkXPress can export SVG files, though Quark has said they are committed to the format. Figure 45-1 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. For more information on exporting to SVG, see Real World InDesign.
