About

SVG, short for Scalable Vector Graphics, is a language used for describing two-dimensional vector graphics. It's originally an XML based format, but can also be included inline in HTML using HTML parsing rules.

Sample svg file

<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" viewBox="0 0 800 600">
  <style>
    circle { fill: fuchsia; stroke: black; stroke-width:2 }
    text { font: 12px sans-serif }
  </style>
  <circle cx="30" cy="20" r="10"/>
  <text x="10" y="40" transform="rotate(15)">Rotated text</text>
</svg>
