We experimented the integration of SVG and MathML into HTML (not just
XHTML). I could work as the integration of an object or image: the
tolerant parser used for HTML calls the XML strict parser to parse
MathML and SVG.
Today Amaya reports an error in that case to encourage the use of
strictly XML well-formed pages, but there is no problem to work this
way.

I hope SVG will stay strictly XML well-formed.
