Scalable Vector Graphics

The following tables compare SVG compatibility and support for a number of layout engines.

Explanation of tables[edit]

See list of layout engines for the full list. Adobe SVG Viewer, Batik, eSVG and Renesis are SVG-Plugins.

Values[edit]

These indicate the level of support for the given item in each engine. By default, the most recent version of the engine is implied. However, a specific version number can be listed; when this indicates full support, it's the initial version of the engine fully supporting the item.

Value Meaning
Yes Fully supported
No Has never been supported
Partial Only some values are supported
Incorrect Not implemented correctly in all cases
Experimental May be incomplete or buggy
Nightly build Currently in development; full support is expected
Depends Only supported for the specified conditions
Dropped No longer supported

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ KHTML does not have any native image support. This is by design: in Konqueror, multimedia files are handled by KParts. The KDE project also developed an SVG plugin for Konqueror, known as KSVG.[o 1]
  2. ^ <embed> — Presto does not scale the image properly if its size is given in relative units.
  3. ^ <embed>, <object> — KSVG does not scale the image properly if its size is given in relative units.
  4. ^ list-style-image — WebKit does render the image if its size is given in relative units.[w 1]
  5. ^ Renesis 0.7 supports that feature, but because of the rewrite of the plugin Renesis 1.0 doesn't support this any longer.[o 2]
