Subject: [cgmopen-members] Fwd: webcgm

CGM Open Members --

I have replied with my guess about web vector graphics as native formats 
(IE pretty unlikely; NN uncertain but I doubt it), as well as some 
observations on the other questions.

Please feel free to reply directly if you have input on their questions...
