[Mono-devel-list] SVG, Glade xml vs Avalon

Here is an article that compares XAML with other standards. CSS2, XUL, SVG,
and XHTML.
Indeed some of the tags duplicate (with incompatible names) SVG, but that is
just a few of the tags.

no it's not. Avalon is primarily a set of classes implementing a gui
toolkit, one aspect of which is an integral preference for vector
graphics rather than bitmaps. There is a related tool, xaml, which you
could almost be accurate in describing as a tool for mapping CLR classes
to XML namespaces.

This would be apparent if you had read any competently-written articles
about avalon.

Sorry for the flamish mail, there's just too many misconceptions about
this floating around and they are starting to get annoying.
