SVG`s XML Binding Language -- sXBL -- is an XML vocabulary being developed at the W3C as a means of mapping XML elements in arbitrary vocabularies to SVG pictures that represent those elements. For example, an XML Metadata Interchange (XMI) document can be turned into SVG code that shows the actual Unified Modeling Language (UML) diagram encoded in the XMI document. But sXBL takes the separation of presentation from content one step further: It is a generic language for rendering documents as arbitrarily complex two-dimensional pictures. This article offers an overview of this emerging and potentially powerful technology.
