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."

You asked if SVG can do 3D, you did not ask about rendering.

Fine, fair enough. I meant 3d rendering,a ctual 3d objects. I assumed that's what peope would read.

SVG will give us javascriptable vectors. There is a specification for something called "Canvas", which will be a javascriptable 2d imaging api, and theres plans for a spec for Canvas3d after the 2d implementation gets off the ground.

The way things stand in the open world, the standards based version of avalon will be a combination of XUL, SVG, and Canvas.
