Yes. Many thanks it is very useful all this

I've a problem: SVG is for single page graphics... I'd need something
that can output many pages in PDF for example.
I've found the SVG Print http://www.w3.org/TR/SVGPrint/ , is this supported?
Alternatively I could generate one PDF at a time and then join?

Best regards
