Dean,

Gifs, bitmaps, jpgs, png, MSvector are all external files, why is SVG 
different?
Is there another graphics format that isn't linked to externally?

Can we please have an explanation of what the particular issue is with 
respect to SVG?
Graphics do need to be portable, upgradeable and maintainable,
Wherever the problem is it needs a serious rethink.

Having now completed the accessible site, all 5 pages, I can safely 
state that this will not be happening again in a hurry.

thanks again

Jonathan
