Gilles is right, the function that links embedded pictures needs to know 
that the link text is actually a picture. Something like this in 
config.php should do the trick:


(This will also work with compressed SVG files.)

Incidentally, if you enable this in config.php, you no longer need the 
recipe, you can remove cookbook/svg.php and the svg file will display 
fine with the <img/> tag (core PmWiki) instead of the <embed/> tag 

I believe at some point more browsers supported SVGs with the <embed/> 
tag. But today all current versions of the browsers, and older versions 
released as early as 5 years ago, can display SVG pictures with the 
<img/> tag:


I think about adding SVG(Z) as an embeddable image extension to the 
core. Anyone sees a reason not to?
