No.  I think my ISP's web server has a simple misconfiguration.

It does work for ps and pdf, at least with my copy of Firefox.

ps and pdf, at least the way I see them, are not in the same boat as SVG.  
SVG is an image format that can easily be included in a html page.  ps and 
pdf are stand alone.  They assume they control the whole setup and are 
targeted at paper.  Think 8.5x11 or A4.

Yes, if you have a good pdf display program, you can zoom in/out.  But I 
haven't seen pdf graphs included inside normal html pages.

Again, my knowledge of this area is not-great.  I could easily have missed 

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
