Indeed, only a few experimental browsers have (partial) built-in
SVG support. Most usually, support is acquired with the adobe SVG
plugin - but beware that it doesn't fit all and requires an installation.
Otoh Batik can be used server-side to render the SVG to a pixel
format if the browser doesn't support it, iirc.
If pdf is an option I believe it deserves mention that the
reportlab package is very much designed to help produce similar
on-the-fly web graphics in pdf.
