SVG Output Option

Antenna House Formatter can​ produce a SVG output compliant to W3C Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 1.1 specification. Also, it can output SVG Tiny and SVG Basic in the Mobile SVG Profiles defined by the SVG 1.1 specification. Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) is an XML-based vector image format for two-dimensional graphics with support for interactivity and animation.

Mobile SVG Profiles are the specifications for mobile computing devices or cellular phones which have restrictions in the throughput of the hardware, the memory capacity and the number of colors that can be displayed. Since SVG Tiny is for the hardware with the most restrictions, like a cellular phone, it may contain a lot of elements that are not supported or may have restrictions. Therefore, the reproduction level of the original document before transformation may be low.

SVG Basic is for more high-efficient pocket devices, such as high-efficient PDA, and has fewer restrictions than SVG Tiny. See also Mobile SVG Profiles for more details.

Antenna House Formatter outputs SVG Tiny and SVG Basic on the basis of the output for SVG 1.1 by disregarding the unsupported elements.
