the thing is, that when you load a static svg document, the adobe plugin
creates an html page with EMBED element and uses that to display the svg
document, i.e. if you load the url, the plugin
creates an html document that has

<EMBED SRC=""; NAME="SVGEmbed" HEIGHT="100%"
WIDTH="100%" TYPE="image/svg-xml"

or something like that in it. thus, you should instead output html with
something like the above. the problem is, the adobe plugin requires it's svg
document to come throught the SRC attribute, that is it has to fetch it from
some url. i tried to embed the svg document into the html page and use it
that way, but i couldn't make it work.
