FOP has support for SVG and there are many applications that output SVG. Is
there a way in BIRT to embed SVG so that any SVG producing application,
including chart engines, could be integrated easily.
From the charting side, we are looking for PNG / JPG / GIF for HTML output
(with image maps if possible) and SVG for PDF output. Output to MS Office
format documents (doc and xls) would be really good as well.
