The SVG graphs available at http://en.wikipedia.org/wikistats/EN/Sitemap.htm
refuse to cooperate with Firefox, Opera, or anything that isn't MSIE with the
Adobe SVG Plugin. They just doggedly request that you download said plugin.
In a related problem, which almost justifies the existence of the above bug, is
that when I force Firefox to look at the SVG files themselves, they won't render
correctly -- text is overlapping and illegible. Is it a safe guess that the
graph generator makes non-standard SVG that's tailored for use with Adobe?
The SVG's work in Firefox 1.5 both on normal pages and viewed directly,
the one I tried also validates.
The author did use a nonstandard way to embed them into the pages however, he's
using <embed> but should be using <object> or XHTML namespaces.
1. UA: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux ppc; en-US; rv:1.8) Gecko/20051130 Firefox/1.5
Rectified the summary, changed serverity to minor and fixed the invalid URL
I get the same problems as in comment 0 , using Firefox 1.5, WinXP SP2, 144dpi.
With the ".htm" URL, Firefox plugin Finder Service reports the plugin as unknown.
Viewing the ".svg" URL, reducing the browser text size improves both text
overlap on the x-axis and right-truncated labels on the y-axis.
I'm using the NoScript extension with Firefox 1.5, and with scripts disabled it
renders the SVGs with the problems described above. With scripts enabled, I get
the unknown plugin problem.
While IE6 with the Adobe plugin renders the SVGs ok, the page also displays
"Rendering.... Please wait" and "your browser does not support embedded objects".
No idea if this is still current. :) Poking over to Erik Z...
