I have searched the archives of this forum, but I am unable to
find the answer. I want to put SVG graphs--dozens of them--(bar
charts or line graphs) into cells of an HTML-type table. I think
it may be possible to generate a single XML file with an <svg>
and </svg> tag pair for each graph. But I am unable to find the
right header and trailer tags to get my browser to recognize both
SVG and HTML (XML?).

For me, the promise of SVG is doing just this: putting lots of
small graphs into a normal ASCII hypertext file. Doing the same
thing with raster files creates a file management and space
consumption problem. The ability for a single program (such as
C++, Perl, or my favorite, SAS) to crank out mixed text and
graphics in a single, text-encoded file will take us to a new
frontier in data visualization. "Investigations" of a computer
performance, financial, or other numerical anomaly can be reduced
to just a few mouse clicks. The need to laboriously generate
large numbers of separate files containing plots, histograms, and
so forth, to support an investigation will be dramatically
reduced.
