This article discusses the importance of providing structure and labelling within SVG code, particularly when the SVG code is generated indirectly by a high-level system and when the SVG code describes a complex image such as a statistical plot. We argue that this is a desirable goal, but that many high-level systems that generate SVG do not provide sufficient structure and labelling. An example of a system, based on R, that does provide structure and labelling, is described to demonstrate that the goal is acheivable and we highlight the crucial features of this system that we see as important factors in achieving this goal.
