Appendix B. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)

Appendix B. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG)

Our work with XML uses the language to encode fairly abstract data like quiz questions or player identities. We use Flash to convert these into on-screen displays. Typography, layout and illustration—as well as animation and interaction—are employed to create a display that beautifies the data and hopefully clarifies its meaning.

There is a huge divide between the XML data and the graphics used to display it. The graph ics are transmitted as .swf files in Flash's proprietary encoding. The graphic data exist in a different address space not directly accessible to the functions that manipulate the XML data.
