Raster graphics are ubiquitous on the web, but many architectural and engineering applications would be better served by vector techniques. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an emerging XML based vector graphics standard from the World Wide Web Consortium, but is not yet implemented in mainstream browsers. We describe a way of using the widely distributed Macromedia Flash Player to display SVG files. The resulting drawings are easy to rescale and restyle within the browser, offer superior printing, and many possibilities for advanced interaction and animation.
