Lately i've found an interest in XML and SVG graphics and their various purposes. It seems to me that XML was designed to be around forever. I like it because the concept and implementation is extremely simple and not cluttered with details. It also seems like it's resistant to Microsoft infecting it with endless proprietary extensions that take something powerful and free and make it slow, bloated and expensive.
What i hope to do is read from a database and export SVG wiring schematics but the logic involved in preventing wires from crossing etc may be a bit tricky but it should be a fun project and a good chance to learn XML and SVG. I think it'll be a very useful tool to have under my belt in the future. One more trick for my bag.
