SVG files undergo a unique treatment in Fluid Topics. They are converted into a PNG format using the CairoSVG technology which is embedded in Fluid Topics. Be aware that CairoSVG does not support the <title> and <desc> tags, which are used to add alternative texts to images. As a consequence, Fluid Topics cannot ensure WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) compliancy with SVG files.

Note: In DITA, as SVG files are vector graphics, it is not possible to resize them using the scale attribute. We recommend defining a width or a height for the file.
