Works somewhat in SeaMonkey (gives default specified rendering size of
image in a small object box with scroll bars) and Safari (gives
default size in small box with no scroll bars, i.e. top left corner
only) and best in Minefield (scales image to size of object box,
scales properly with WIDTH= or HEIGHT=).

(Minefield uses 100% CPU just displaying my test image, but also
renders the SVG most accurately of any of them - this image was drawn
in Omnigraffle but is known to misrender in Firefox, SeaMonkey,
Safari, ImageMagick, Inkscape and rsvg - proprietary, or I'd link a
copy. I expect I should create a test case and file a lot of bugs ...)

Thank you all!
