Unable to view SVG image, any help?
I have an old vehicle service manual that uses html, js, xml, and SVG objects populated by js and xml forms. The links on the webpages work, but the images fail to display.
Attached is an example of an SVG file that fails to display in a web browser (Edge, IE, Firefox, Chrome, IETab in Chome (all latest versions as of April 2018). Other SVG files like https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Test.svg work correctly.
I can open the attached .svg file with Inkscape and view the image, but doing this is very cumbersome.
Any ideas on how to get these to display in Firefox? Thanks!

You can't attach a SVG file and otherwise it might be converted. You would have to print the SVG code in a reply or post a link.
You can check the Web Console for error messages about SVG.
Of course it wouldn't attach! I'll get a link shortly...
Here a link to an example svg file that I am having trouble with
I'll checkout the Web Console.
Hmmm, when opening in Firefox I get "This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below." and the contents of the file (the xml data). The console is blank when viewing just the svg file.
In other browsers I get various bits of info that are parts of data in the xml, but not the image I am expecting (wire harness connector).
Perhaps this SVG file is not a standard format?
Excellent! This is a huge step in the right direction! I can mass edit files easily enough.
Next hurdle...with the namespace you added I can view the file in Firefox, but the text is not rendered as I would expect. Attached is a comparison of Firefox left versus Inkscape right. Any ideas here?
If these are just SVG issues instead of browser issues is there an SVG support forum that you would recommend?
