Seven years ago I had an article published in MSDN Magazine demonstrating how to target SVG from ASP.NET. It was a speculative submission that I sent in because I really believed in the technology and its importance to the web.
In my various drafts I had included details about Microsoft’s participation in the various SVG groups, and how that bodes well to its eventual adoption by Microsoft. Those got edited out before publication.
Alas, while it took far longer than it should have, it is a wonderful development to see that Internet Explorer 9 finally adds SVG to the browser.
