I want to develop a web application in which i need to make 2d drawings.
Can anyone, suggest me open source / well documented libraries for rendering 2d drawing on the web ?

Also, it should work well on internet explorer as well

Thanks

Well a lot of modern browsers now support HTML5's 'Canvas' element, which can do all sorts of fancy drawing and animation, as shown in the compatibility chart here:

An introduction to, and examples of which can be found here:

But for support in IE Browsers of version 8 or earlier, you will probably need to use a third party library such as FlashCanvas, which can be found here:
