Years ago I was asked to hack a macro to add a specific namespace to any
SVG files exported from Visio, in order for them to be used in XML
publishing workflows. SVGs should be editable with a text editor.
I wouldn't doubt it if the RR program you're using exports SVGs as a binary
format, like a zip archive, that contained the SVG markup as an ASCII text
file. You can tell if you open the file in NoteTab and it begins with PK...
