I got a surprise when opening an SVG file in emacs in Fedora 15 to do a little editing. I didn’t see the expected SVG source but instead saw a rendering of the SVG. Cool…. but one problem: How DO you edit the source? A quick Internet search led to aa Emacs Wiki page where the solution could be found: Use Ctrl-c Ctrl-c to switch back between editing and rendering modes. SVG rendering only works on a fairly recent version of emacs and only, it appears, on systems using X11. It uses the rather unloved librsvg2 library so don’t expect perfect rendering. The Wiki page also shows how you can control Inkscape directly from emacs if you have a DBUS enabled version of Inkscape. Hmm.
