Sorry Peter, I know you wanted this thread to stay on topic, but there 
has been a lot of xml-dev talk lately about how Firefox has poor support 
of SVG. That may not be your argument but I wanted to point out that the 
SVGs in that file don't work in Firefox because they aren't wellformed. 
Once you correct the incorrect GE ref to &ns_graphs;(and the sodipodi 
element in the 3rd one), Firefox can handle it. Even though Firefox 
supports SVG 1.1 it attempts to display the 1.0 document presented and 
does so almost 100% consistent to Adobe's renderer. Inkscape also 
supports the document primarily because of its status as an editor and 
the expectation that it would be attempting to render incomplete documents.

Kind regards,
Jeff Rafter
