DESCRIPTION
DVISVG is a program for converting from DVI to SVG.

DVISVG creates one SVG Document, which includes content of the selected page
from the specified DVI file. DVISVG produces outlines for used glyphs/characters
in DVI file as an external SVG Font.

SVG Document produced by DVISVG uses external SVG Fonts so there is
a problem with using Adobe's SVG Viewer which doesn't currently support it.
Solution is using embeded fonts which can to be easily inserted in svg file
from the external fonts file.

For more about program options and configuration look in included man page
in the sources of DVISVG.
