VML became obsolete today. Sorry. :)

The W3C released th first draft of SVG which will eventually become the
Web's "official" structured vector graphics specification. This is an
important event for anyone interested in vector graphics in the Web
context but also more generally. Still, this is very rough so we have a
long way to go before it is complete, standardized and widely implemented.

Earth will soon support only survivor species -- dandelions, roaches, 
lizards, thistles, crows, rats. Not to mention 10 billion humans.
