Re: Simple Vector file format for Web?

NAPLPS ("nap-lips") could make excellent sense for the Web because it
was specifically designed for efficiency over the wire. I discovered
just a couple of weeks ago that Microstar, a company now known for its
DTD design tools (Near & Far and the *free* Near & Far Lite), has a
long history in NAPLPS software development. The person that I talked
to seemed to think that it had definite possibilities as a Web
format. And it is, if memory serves, an ANSI standard.
