Redmond, Washington -- While it is striving arduously at creating the next iteration of Internet Explorer, the Redmond software maker, Microsoft has jumped on to join a World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Scalable Vector Graphics bandwagon, IE senior program manager Patrick Dengler has blogged.
Essentially, the Redmond company wishes to be intimately involved in the evolution of XML graphics for the web. The company said it plans on developing future versions of the W3C's scalable vector graphics (SVG) recommendation, currently at version 1.1.
The move came as “part of Microsoft’' continued commitment to interoperability and standards support, revealed Dengler. “We are excited to take part in ensuring future versions of the SVG spec will meet the needs of developers and end users.”
