I do not doubt that as the application that produces the SVGs is IE 
centric. Turns out I won't be needing to turn it into JPG after all (at 
least that's the latest on this moving target of a project.)

I think the error was related to the use of javascript. I have not 
verified the SVGs are valid and it wouldn't help since I cannot affect 
them much.

Now my problem is how to get the SVGs into Framemaker so that they can 
be exported through WebWorks embedded web pages (that's the relatively 
easy part) and so that no matter what size the SVG is it will fit in 
the space allotted and look as good printed as on screen. I can't seem 
to accomplish this at all.

I'm going to make myself busy with something else and hope they ask 
somebody else about this. The whole project is designed to eliminate 
the need for middle-men (which means web designers, proofreaders and 
other content providers.)
