| If the user agent includes an HTML or XHTML viewing
| capability or can apply CSS/XSL styling properties to XML
| documents, then a Conforming SVG Viewer must support
| resources of MIME type "image/svg+xml" wherever raster
| image external resources can be used, such as in the HTML
| or XHTML 'img' element and in CSS/XSL properties that
| can refer to raster image resources (e.g., 'background-image').
