Creating vector graphics

Because SVG is an XML language, you can create vector graphics in the SVG format in any text editor. Alternatively, some graphics editing tools, such as BlackBerry® Composer (available with the BlackBerry® Theme Studio) , Adobe® Illustrator, or Microsoft® Visio, allow you to create content and export it as SVG. However, be aware that the SVG produced by graphics editing tools will not strictly conform to SVG Tiny™. You may need to modify the XML markup manually to achieve the desired results.

You can create vector graphics in the PME format using the BlackBerry Composer, or you can create SVG content and then transcode it using the SVG Transcoding Utility. The SVG Transcoding Utility is available with the BlackBerry Theme Studio, or as a component of the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service and BlackBerry Internet Service Browsing network gateways. You can transcode your content from the SVG format to the PME format and then post the resulting PME file, or, if you know that users are accessing your content through the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service or BlackBerry Internet Service Browsing network gateways, you can post content in the SVG format and allow the network gateway to transcode it into the PME format as it preprocesses your content before sending it to the BlackBerry device.
