I don't know of such a solution. SVG is a lot more powerful than PDF since it allows filter effects and animation. The other advanced features of SVG can be emulated with more or less effort. The filter effects can be approximated but you need to define a resolution to do them. Therefore, you loose the vector properties of SVG. An SVG to PDF converter that ignores filter effects and animation shouldn't be too hard to write. We've discussed this and decided to write a PDF parser instead. Our graphics library is then used to render the parsed graphic primitives in order to generate either PDF, SVG, Flash (SWF) or raster graphics (GIF, PNG, JPG, TIFF). Since there are SVG parsers readily available (e.g. Batik from the Apache project), such a converter shouldn't be too hard. Yours, Tobias Haustein -- Dipl. Inform.
