French term or phrase: svt
Hi, everyone.

I am unfamiliar with the term "svt" as it pertains to the following paragraph:
"Important: Attention, on ne traduit jamais " Voir annexe sur --- page XXX." (svt dans les notes de bas de page)"

Any help with this term would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, in advance!
