Q&A

Q1:Who is the W3C?
A1: The W3C, the World Wide Web Consortium, is a group dedicated to defining the standards on the Internet experience. They have provided the recommendations for standards such as HTML, PNG, XML, and much more. You can learn more about them at http://www.w3.org/.
Q2:Why SVG? Can't Flash do everything I need already?
A2: Although Flash and SVG may both be vector graphics technologies, each has its own strengths and weaknesses. Many developers are looking for a technology that is easily expandable (meaning they can add additional functionality without paying royalties to a patent-holder), is compatible with XML and other technologies (allowing for data to be quickly shared or reformatted without a lot of development effort), allows concurrent development (both designers and developers can work side-by-side during an SVG project), and is inexpensive (the technology is free and does not require any expensive authoring tools for entry)—and SVG fits this bill. Flash, on the other hand, is still well suited for animation and has a large plug-in install base.
