Dear Chris,

Could I suggest to add in this registration clipboard format names as  
part of the additional information so that applications use them  
consistently?

I would suggest the following for uncompressed svg as a first  
approximation, but maybe there are existing attempts already?

- Windows: "SVG Image"
- MacOSX Uniform Type Identifier: org.w3c.svg conforms to public.image  
and to public.xml

I am doubting that the 4-letter codes are still in use but I may be  
wrong.

paul
