Short Take: W3C recommends WebCGM Profile

The World Wide Web Consortium has approved the recommendation of the WebCGM Profile, which standardizes the use of Computer Graphics Metafiles (CGMs) on the Web. CGM is a graphics format, issued as a standard by the International Organization for Standardization for use in online materials like technical manuals. The W3C recommendation is meant to improve hyperlinked CGM interoperability; several proprietary versions exist.
