If, as Jochen described, the svg code is being generated from an ASP
script, then it should surely not involve making any changes to the

is set as image/svg-xml in the line in the script that specifies the
header information.

I have done successfully this with a Perl script accessing data from the
MySQL database system.  The line of code in Perl reads:
print "Content-type: image/svg-xml\n\n";
