[FoRK] AJAX: Asynchronous JavaScript + XML

Some of the original SVG demos from Adobe included HTTP requests --
their SVG viewer has always included Javascript.

If deployment were broader, I'd think that SVG would be a good
alternative to Flash for "rich" internet apps -- it's scriptable,
easily generated, can make its own HTTP requests, etc.  Once again,
the issue is installed base (mostly Adobe SVG 3.0, with some running
the later, somewhat incompatible, beta viewer) for me.

Absolute power corrupts absolutely, but model train sets do a pretty
good job as well
