I don't know about viewing SVG from within your browser
(i.e. embedded viewers).  But there are SVG viewers you can throw
at an SVG saved to disk.  SVG can be viewed by "display" (from
the "imagemagick" package), perhaps your best bet if you're
running Woody.  Sodipodi and sketch are SVG editors, so as a side
effect can view SVG.
