You can tell by trying out the URL in Web-Sniffer [1].  Think of it as a 
validator for server configuration, if that helps.

In this case, your server seems not to know about SVG, so it tells the 
browser that it's sending it a text file.

It's usually easy to fix this problem... instructions are on the SVG 
Wiki [2].

By the way, this list, www-svg, is an W3C forum to discuss issues with the
SVG Spec. For questions about development details and such, you should post
to the very active,  friendly, and helpful list called SVG-Developers [3].
