You cannot just get the transformation done client-side and the Adobe
SVG Viewer triggered. But you can use some horrible Microsoft thing
called Binary Behaviour to embed inline SVG inside HTML. I think you can
find examples at http://www.siliconpublishing.org/svg.asp . I think you
might well want to use the latest Adobe SVG Viewer 3.0 beta
(http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/beta.html) in order to view
this page correctly since it makes use of the new transparent ActiveX
control.

But really, binary behaviour is a dirty little trick just because
Microsoft have decided not to come up with a more XML-enabled browser
and just don't do anything remotely interesting with Namespace, really a
shame. Some people like it though, but it's a dirty hack.
