Enable SVG with Firefox html

Enable SVG with Firefox

I have posted a few articles on generating Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) – for example for PieCharts, SpeedoMeters and LineCharts. Buried in those posts are instructions on enabling SVG in FireFox 1.0. Ben Ruming posted a small article on the same topic on his Oracle in the Real World blog. A small excerpt:

Simply download the latest SVG 6.0 Beta binaries from here and install them.

1. Navigate to the installed directory, on Win2k that would be “C:Program FilesCommon FilesAdobeSVG Viewer6.0Plugins” and copy the files NPSVG6.dll NPSVG6.zip

2. Paste the files into the plugins directory for firefox. This directory on Win2k is “C:Program FilesMozilla Firefoxplugins”.

3. Simply restart Firefox and your ready to use SVG graphics!
