VML specifications for scalable vector graphics were created jointly by Autodesk Inc., Hewlett-Packard Company, Macromedia Inc., Microsoft Corporation, and Visio Corporation und im May 1998 beim W3C als Standard eingereicht.

Microsoft IE5 is currently the only browser that supports the VML standard. As VML is implemented as an extension to the DOM it's extremely programmable and flexible, this makes it possible to write JScript extensions to VML. As VML comes with the browser it requires no downloads or plugins and is accessible to a wide audience.
