Microsoft "Another interesting announcement here at PDC is that Microsoft is creating a subset of their cool, fancy pants UI layer (formerly code-named Avalon, now WPF) on other platforms, including the Mac! In fact, one of the demos involved showing vector graphics rendered in Safari using a Microsoft plug-in."

Get ready for it. In the near future, IE will be the only major browser that doesn't support it inline with xhtml. It's going to start being used on the web whether microsoft ignores it or not.

I personally can't wait to start fooling around with it more seriously when the next version of gecko is complete.

You mean like MathML is being used an the web (Mozilla supports it) whether Microsoft ignores it or not? That's why Wikipedia, Wikibooks, and various blog engines rely on rendered images and mediocre formatting? If "used" here simply means that there will exist a non-empty set of sites that make use of it on the entire Internet, well then I'm pretty sure Microsoft doesn't care about that.
