The size of the image is measured in ems. Inside the image is the word HELP,
and the image of the lifesaver. The author makes the lifesaver into some size
relative to the size of the image as a whole. Then when the image is scaled
for display, the size of the lifesaver depends on the size of the image,
which depends on the size of 'em'.

So the lifesaver is scaled along with the text.

  OK, so you're saying that if SVG is nothing but the text string

  "HELP"

  that word will appear the same size that ordinary HTML text would have
  appeared, and the perimeter is autosized to fit that word, right?

  Now what if the SVG also contains a picture of a lifesaver next to the word
  "HELP".  What determines the size of the lifesaver relative to the size of
  the text?
