Just a short note that I have experimented with svg embedded inline in xhtml. Taking the code
from webkit+svg, I did a prototype bundling khtml2 and ksvg2 on top of kdom, and making sure
the svg elements use render objects this time. I also used just one backend, which uses the qt4 painter.
Even though I did not get to implement all features (markers, text), it clearly shows that
inlining of svg in xhtml is very possible!
Here are examples of rendering of xhtml+svg docs:
