Appendix B. File Format

It is not the purpose of this section to describe the Inkscape and SVG file formats in detail (for that, look at the W3C SVG [http://www.w3.org/TR/SVG/] website). Instead, the purpose is to give an overview that could help the user, for example, edit the SVG files with the XML Editor.

Here is a listing of the default template (default.svg):
