64053Re: [svg-developers] Re: Including SVG in RSS
- Oct 1, 2010I've been running into what seems like the same sort of issue in trying to
put SVG content in Moodle pages. inline, <object> and <iframe> don't seem
to work and <embed> has some troubles as well (including lack of fallback).
I had forgotten about <img>, so will be interested in trying that.
