Silas -

Using CGI is pretty old school at this point and I suspect you'd find better
documentation if you looked at one of the modern frameworks on the Python
Wiki Web Frameworks page (http://wiki.python.org/moin/WebFrameworks).

SVG on the other hand is a data standard for representing vector images in
XML and has nothing to do with CGI or any other HTTP processing model.
Perhaps you're trying to figure out how to get SVG images in HTML documents?
You could start out with static HTML and a static SVG image. A List Apart
just published a good overview of the browser support for various methods
for getting SVG in HTML documents that you might find useful - Part 1 is at
part 2 is linked at the bottom of the page...
