convert CorelDraw (.cdr) files into .svg files.

What is the best way to convert CorelDraw (.cdr) files into .svg files. A programmer will be using .svg files as input and output files in a graphic design utility for online users to create artwork for promotional products. I have exported them thusfar, but they open in Corel with its' page defaults. CorelDraw 11, 12 and X3 (13) have an option to export as .SVG Here is some info on exporting to SVG using CorelDraw 12: Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) allows three types of graphic objects: vector graphic shapes (for example, paths consisting of straight lines and curves), images, and text. Drop shadows are rasterized in SVG files. All CorelDRAW symbols are supported on export as SVG symbols. Object, layer, group, and symbol names are also supported. Where the names are the same, the SVG file will append unique numbers to the object IDs. Invalid names are corrected on export. Graphical objects can be grouped, styled, transformed, and combined into previously rendered objects. You can export text as editable characters, so that after you publish an SVG graphic to the Web, text continues to be recognized as text. Text strings can be restyled, copied and pasted, or indexed by search engines. Text can also be edited by SVG-capable editing programs, eliminating the need for maintaining multiple versions of graphic images for editing. The SVG standard allows the use of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) to define font, text, and color properties of objects on a page. Layers are retained as groups in the exported file. Only the active page in a drawing is exported. If you want to export only a part of a drawing, enable the Selected only check box in the Export dialog box. URLs assigned to text objects are retained in the exported file. Transformations applied to objects, such as rotation and skewing, are retained in the exported file. For CorelDraw X3: (you can go to the Help menu and search for SVG and you will find lots of information) To export a Scalable Vector Graphics file 1. Click File Export. 2. Locate the folder in which you want to save the file. 3. Choose SVG - Scalable vector graphics or SVGZ - Compressed SVG from the Save as type list box. 4. Type a filename in the File name list box. 5. Click Export. 6. From the Encoding method list box, choose one of the following encoding options: ' Unicode - UTF-8  produces a smaller file size. This is the default encoding method and is useful in most circumstances. ' Unicode - UTF-16  produces a bigger file size 7. In the Export text area, enable one of the following options: ' As text  exports text as editable characters, known as glyphs ' As curves  exports text as curves 8. Choose one of the following options from the Styling options list box: ' Presentation attributes  lets you specify attributes directly in an element in the exported file ' Internal style sheet  uses the CLASS attribute to embed the style sheet in the Scalable Vector Graphics file ' External CSS  creates an external cascading style sheet file and links it to the Scalable Vector Graphics file JavaScript related to rollovers can be saved to a separate file by enabling the Link externally check box in the JavaScript area. ' You must embed fonts when you require the display of a specific font that the users may not have installed on their computers. ' As the number of fonts or fountain fill steps increases, so does the size of the file. ' Objects with mesh fills or drop shadows are exported as bitmaps. ' If no single element in a drawing is selected, the content of the entire page is exported. ' To preview the SVG file, you can use the Corel SVG viewer installed with the application.
