I have SVG images with Inkscape attributes that fail epubcheck and Google validation.

When I try to save them as plain SVG, the invalid "inkscape:XXX:" elements remain.

What program on what platform can load in the Inkscape SVG and save them as clean plain SVG?

Try this script. Open file and then press "Save".

  • Thank you, I think it worked. Does it alter the geometry?

    The program only removes inkscape:***, sodipodi:***, rdf:***, cc:*** and dc:*** elements and attributes and doesn't touch the SVG elements and attributes. But you may open the file (e.g. in browser) and check that it is displayed correctly. Later I will make some more convenient utility. Mar 15, 2015 at 12:17
