 Print articles
I have listed only longer articles and they are only from German language magazines
and newspapers. Sorry.
I bought and listed these sources in order to show the history of press coverage
of SVG. However, since summer 2003 I make a very strong selection and perhaps
I even will - at some point - stop feeding this list.

By the way, I first heard about SVG in January 2001 in one of these listed articles.
I will never forget that feeling: "Wow! Brave new world!"
I was so excited. Actually, I still am.
