Tools to Create SVG

As mentioned earlier, you can use a number of WYSIWYG programs to export their documents as SVG code. Rather than working in a code environment, these applications let you author your documents in a manner true to their final display.

The cost of these programs varies from free to hundreds of American dollars. Keep in mind that you do not need these programs to create SVG content. Rather, they facilitate the easy translation of their documents' contents into SVG code. Table 24.3 details several products (and their price, supported platforms, and feature set) available to the consumer at press time.
