Published Knowledge Webs have traditionally relied on Adobe's SVG Viewer plugin. This plugin is no longer a supported product, but can still be downloaded and installed from http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/. The plugin allows Internet Explorer to display SVG.
The SVG produced during the publishing process is not compatible with the implementation in other browers (Safari, Firefox and Chrome) that directly support SVG.
To overcome this problem webs can be post-processed to produce SVG that is compatible across browsers (see Post-Processing a Web). Post-processing also perfomrs a number of other transformations which greatly improve performance.
For browsers that lack SVG support a set of templates have been produced that convert the SVG to bitmaps and use Image maps to provide some of the SVG functionality.
