[webkit-dev] SVG display in embed elements chooses ASV instead of Webkit

When I view HTML files with an embedded SVG file (using the <embed /> 
tag) webkit loads the SVG in the Adobe SVG viewer instead of the native 
SVG implementation.

Is this known or intended behavior?

I certainly would prefer the <object /> tag instead of the <embed/> tag, 
but IE7 does not like Adobe SVG viewer in the object tag :-(

Here is an example:


I am testing with MacOSX 10.4.8 (PowerPC) with the latest Apple Webkit 
(nightly build).

Thanks for any information on this issue.
