By IE7 you mean "IE7 on OS-X with Adobe SVG Plugin?" I've never used
that browser -- it doesn't have built-in SVG support, correct?

Actually it is running on Parallels on Windows XP SP2.

In general, I'm not too concerned about supporting a long abandoned tool
like the Adobe SVG viewer.

Long abandoned it maybe, but I don't see any real alternatives for IE. I
suppose one could use a java-based implementation and write a full-featured
web app, but a browser plugin is a lot more convenient.
