So they look a very different from the PNG files, I suppose? Do you
like the PNG plots or don't you like them either. The reason I ask is
that it might be reasonably easy to send PNG to the browser instead or
provide that as an option at least. In fact PNG support would be nice
anyway, since then we could display Axiom plots in Emacs.

There are two potential problems I can think of. First of all SVG
support is still somewhat shaky in Mozilla and Firefox, so you might
have to use a development build. I wouldn't recommend this, though,
since Firefox 1.5 is due in a few days. The second problem is that
with some Mozilla/Firefox builds one has to enable SVG support
first. To do that, load about:config and look for an option like
svg_enabled and set it to true.

Thanks for your patience,
