I created some vector images that I (after converting them to PNG) used 
for axis, label, measurement, etc. graphics. I want to keep them with my 
collection, but I don't think I am allowed to upload them. Would it be 
possible to make an exception for a vector format of some type? I use 
SVG, but I understand that can be a risk since it is possible to insert 
JavaScript into it. Maybe a different format would be better? Thanks.

The JavaScript risk is probably not a big issue, since JavaScript can 
also be inserted into HTML documents.  The biggest problem with the 
Collection right now is access to the server; the Collection 
administrator (Chris Bartlett) has not been heard from in almost 10 
years.  Le Forgeron has some level of access, but there's only so much 
he's permitted to do.

Does he own the server the collection is residing on?

I do not know.  I doubt it, though; it would be highly unusual for a 
server to be running this long with no sign of its owner.  At the very 
least, bills must be paid and/or collected.

How large are the SVG files?
Aren't they all just a text-based format like HTML?

You could rename them to .txt and likely post them.

Alternatively, you can embed them into the header of a jpg file of the same
image.   Then I think you can just rename it to .svg and it's instantly useable
as one.

They are not very large at all. Renaming the extension is a good idea. I 
will try that.
