What is SVG?

From http://w3.org/Graphics/SVG/

- "SVG is a language for describing two-dimensional graphics and graphical
applications in XML."

What are the svg2pdf/png/ps tools?

I thought this was fairly obvious. ;)

From http://www.cairographics.org/

- "Cairo is a vector graphics library designed to provide high-quality display
and print output."

This is the library used by these tools to convert an SVG into a PDF, PNG or PS

What is the SVGbatch tool?

Simply a script that will automate the conversion of a complete directory of
SVGs to PNG, it can be run from WB or Shell (more options are available then).

What is the fc-cache tool?

It's part of the fontconfig package.

From http://www.fontconfig.org/

- "Fontconfig is a library for font customization and configuration."

When run it will update/build a cache over all the fonts installed on your
system. This cache is used by the SVG tools to find/pick the appropriate
fonts for rendering text when needed.

Where do I get SVGs?

Search around, there's plenty of cliparts, icons, etc out there, some good
places to start would be:

- http://www.openclipart.org/
- http://clipart.nicubunu.ro/
- http://www.inkscape.org/cgi-bin/wiki.pl?Galleries
