Subject: [boost] [documentation] Are SVG's in documentation viable now?

Folks I need your opinions,
Since it's inception, Boost.Math has used PNG versions of equations and
graphs even though scalable SVG versions have been available.
Unfortunately, a variety of issues have prevented their use.
Fortunately, the logjam now appears to have cleared, and use of SVG's
So... I wonder if I can get folks to point their browsers at
http://jzmaddock.github.io/doctest/html/svg_test/equations.html and let
me know if there are any issues? One that I'm aware of, is that the
equations reference Window's specific fonts, but so far in my tests this
appears not to be an issue.
Many thanks, John.
PS, I'm aware of MathJax and similar solutions for equations - but these
generate so many security warnings on IE when used in local docs (not on
a server), that it's a non-starter for now. Besides, we have the SVG's
already, and it's a one line change to make use of them ;-)
