[seek-dev] Design documents for kepler

We've had trouble with these diagramming formats.  Although I'd like to 
say the SVG format is portable, we've found in general that it is not 
yet.  Each SVG editor seems to export an SVG file format that it, and 
only it, can read.  So, for now we settled on using Illustrator for the 
SVG editor, hoping that it would eventually be openable in other SVG 
tools.  By changing some of the save options I've managed to get a 
version saved that opens in other SVG editors such as sodipodi and 
Batik.  Let me know if that helped.


PS --we're waiting for you on the ecogrid conference call right NOW
