Btw, for something similar using gnuplot, I had decent results from
doing svg->png conversion using inkscape (see `man inkscape` for example
of using it to do this from the console).  I think I had to run the svg
through a tool to flatten the namespace or use sed or something, before
putting it through inkscape.  text file formats ftw.

imagemagick also has svg->png conversion tools, and there are a few
other random converters like rsvg, cairo's svg2png, etc. which work at
various levels of functionality (i.e. may take some experimentation to
find one that works good enough.)

Alternatively, a different way to work around svg-in-html limitation
would be to generate the whole page as SVG instead of HTML.  Probably
would be more total effort, but sure would be purty.  ;-)
