Interesting. This recipe works straight out of the box for me (despite
the problems reported on the cookbook page).

Here's what's in my wikipage:

%width=600 height=600%http://openclipart.org/people/mrallowski/1334869889.svg"Green
earth SVG image for environmentally friendly custard"

(That's all on one line, by the way, I'm sure email is going to cause
it to wrap.)

The image is displayed fine when the page is rendered.

What is not working, apparently, is the caption is hung off to the
side as the image is rendered inline, unlike how it is done for a
gif/png/jpg, giving a tool tip. Given it's doing an embed instead of
an img, this may be problematic. It doesn't look to me as though
chrome or firefox do tooltips for title= attributes in an embed tag.
