Handling SVG events in parent HTML document


In a message 'Accessing the SVG DOM from HTML' a description is given on how
to access SVG from HTML, where the SVG is in an embedded object.
In my application I want to do the opposite: handle an SVG event in the
parent HTML code, or call a parent HTML/Javascript method in an SVG event
The use-case is:
I have an HTML page with an SVG drawing (an <embed> element) and a property
sheet (a <table> element)
A SVG drawing is shown in an <embed> element using the Adobe SVG plug-in. If
an element in the drawing is selected, I want to show the properties of that
element in the property sheet.

Is this possible in the current definition of SVG and the current
implementation of the Adobe plug-in?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
