Is this correct?
Later, the article says "Enhancements such as XForms, SVG, and SMiL were
needed to meet the `custom-defined schema' requirement."
Does this mean that OpenDocument supports both SVG and this strange
Draw format? Why the duplication?
OpenDocument is not attached to OOo.
OpenDocument does not include the old OOoDraw format, but it has its own
format which is similar, and was inspired by the old format.
My understanding (I'm no expert) is that OpenDocument uses only one format
for images, but they regularly copied SVG attributes, using an svg:
namespace. For example, here is a rectangle:
svg:width="7.62cm" svg:height="5.715cm" svg:x="8.89cm"
So it includes SVG attributes and non-SVG ones.
