SVG graphics were recently added to
the API Progress Reports (kudos to Jeffrey Liu). These display nicely in
Internet Explorer, but you have to do some work to make them display in
Mozilla Firefox, and the result is not good. My recommendation is to use
IE until the Mozilla support is ready for prime time.
1. Download the special binary build
of Firefox that contains the SVG support.
2. Perform a magic incantation to enable
3. The result is passable but not as
good as in IE due to the current incomplete state of the support.
If this seems like an irresistable challenge
to you, read on.
SVG is not included in the normal Firefox
builds. You have to download a special SVG binary from the SVG page .
I downloaded the Windows XP GDI+ build . Unzip this and look for firefox.exe
in the bin directory.
Next you have to enable svg support.
This is proclaimed in the notice:
There has recently been an important change to SVG enabled
builds. SVG enabled builds now require you to set
the 'svg.enabled' pref to 'true' before they
will render SVG.
There is probably some prefs file you
can edit. However, there is a slick way to do this via the browser :
1. Open the magic URL about:config 2. Filter the listing with svg and look
at the line that contains svg.enabled 3. This preference is false by default.
Double click it to set it to true
Your're now ready to view SVG. For example
 displays like this in IE:
