SVG is supported now
as well. That is no excuse.
The only rational argument one could possibly make for VML is that 80%+ of surfers can view it.
However, when faced against SVG, VML is inferior with respect to implementations, openness, standardization, and at least in my opinion, power. (SVG is *extremely* powerful because of input from the organizations who decided on the standard. It is robust, but simple. Even mobile devices profiles exist!).
That 80% argument becomes redundant when you have a 100% figure to contend with.
You are only cheating yourself and the people you are ignoring by resorting to VML over SVG. If you want vector graphics so badly, why not resort to Flash? I could live with that, but VML? yuck.
