hm...how SVG works?

interesting question, SVG is a XML dialect for describing vector graphics.
To create SVG file you can use any approaches you are using to create XML documents: simply type it in your favoriate editor, use XSLT to generete it and so on.

To render SVG file as an image, you need SVG viewer, currently there are no native support n browsers for SVG. You can install Adobe SVG viewer (both for as standalone or browser plug-in) to render SVG.
   Mozilla have a brach with embedded SVG support - but currently it supports not all SVG features, so use it on your own risk.

   XMLSpy and StylusStudio have built-in support for developnig SVG documents.

    You can get tutorials on SVG at www.xml.com and www.w3cshools.com

And here is some more links abot software to support SVG rendering:
