Firefox 1.1 To Support SVG

Another of the stories I apparently missed was the announcement that Firefox 1.1 will support SVG by default. This is great news! I’m a huge believer in SVG and the possibility of serving up application/xhtml+svg+xml pages is very exciting (to me, at least). In my humble opinion, it’s this type of mixed content that is the future of the Web.

    Is that really a valid mime type? I would stick with application/xml here because I believe adding xhtml+svg+whatever+xml will get out of hand pretty fast.

    You&#039re probably right. I had seen some discussions floating around Mozilla&#039s site regarding the content type of files containing XHTML, SVG, MathML, and other such languages where someone mentioned application/xhtml+mathml+svg+xml, but that appears to have been dropped. Everything I can find now indicates the inclusion of another language by specifying a second value in the doctype and serving the file up as application/xhtml+xml.
