Re: <timesheets>separating svg data from presentation

just wanted to point out that the subject header is not at all
appropriate for what I'm talking about. 

I don't see where I would like to "separate svg data from presentation"
when we're talking about a purely presentational format like SVG, which
is often the output of a transformation of data.

I'm just interested in reducing redundant code, and in having central
remote control over as many as possible aspects of a collection of SVGs;
like we currently can have with CSS.
The benefits would be:
reduction of code: write nothing more than once;
reusability of code;
flexible central remote control: glabal changes are quick and easy.

All this can be achieved with XSLT or any other serverside tool; but a
simple inclusion mechanism would make the concept possible on servers
without special processors.
