It seems no one answered your question so I'll take a stab.

I tried to load an svg circle from winlauncher and I was able to trace a call to svg circle element :: create function. Then I moved to mini browser. I wrote the circle code in a file and wrote its url in the minibrowser window. I couldnot trace a call to svg circle elelent :: create function. The code in the svg file was :
> <?xml version="1.0" standalone="no"?>
> <!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.1//EN" "http://www.w3.org/Graphics/SVG/1.1/DTD/svg11.dtd">

> 	<circle cx="100" cy="50" r="40" stroke="black" stroke-width="2" fill="red"/>
> </svg>

I assume by trace you mean debug, in which case my understanding is that you're looking at the wrong process in WebKit2. Minibrowser is the UI process which will never execute the SVG ::create method. You need the Web process. The Chrome browser does something similar.
