Last night, due to my lack of any social life at all, I started learning some SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) code. It's pretty cool. It's certainly very powerful. I imagine that, for charts and graphs, it's about the best thing available at the moment. The quality of the eventual image is leagues above anything GIF, JPEG or PNG can output for the same filesize. It's built into Firefox by default now. In fact, apart from the render speed being a bit slow for complicated images, I can't really see anything against it.

So why doesn't anyone use it?

EDIT: Just to show off a bit ... here's an example of something I made: http://www.ooer.com/onion/autograph_1.svg

The standard is a bit new and since browsers don't have a viewer installed by default it's harder to justify for many.
