If you do not see the SVG map / content on the web page, it means that you do not have the SVG Viewer plug-in installed, or an older version of the viewer is detected which cannot render the SVG content on the web page.
You can go to the Adobe website and download the free viewer from http://www.adobe.com/svg/viewer/install/mainframed.html. Please note that while Adobe SVG Viewer can still be downloaded, Adobe has announced that it discontinued support of this product on January 1, 2009.
