My main use case is including charts into web pages but also in
printable documents, which may bne made by TeX or by Word. SVG has the
advantage that my browser can display it directly. TeX is the least
convenient for this purpose, but I am not allergic to Makefiles that
do the required conversion to e.g. PNG.
