Here is a simple Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) example
SVG AppearanceSVG source code (hello.svg)

<!DOCTYPE svg PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD SVG 1.0//EN" 

<svg xmlns="" 
 width='300px' height='300px'>

<title>Small SVG example</title>

<circle cx='120' cy='150' r='60' style='fill: gold;'>
 <animate attributeName='r' from='2' to='80' begin='0' 
 dur='3' repeatCount='indefinite' /></circle>

<polyline points='120 30, 25 150, 290 150' 
 stroke-width='4' stroke='brown' style='fill: none;' />

<polygon points='210 100, 210 200, 270 150' 
 style='fill: lawngreen;' /> 
<text x='60' y='250' fill='blue'>Hello, World!</text>


To place a SVG digram on a Web page, there are two techniques. First, the OBJECT element is an HTML standard and is the way that you should be able to place an SVG diagram on a Web page. For example, like this:

SVG AppearanceHTML source code

<object type="image/svg+xml" data="hello.svg" 
width="300" height="300" border="3"></object>

The EMBED (nonstandard) element sometimes has to be used for older browsers. For example, like this:

SVG AppearanceHTML source code

<EMBED type="image/svg+xml" src="hello.svg" 
width="300" height="300" border="3"></EMBED>
Note how the EMBED attribute "src" is used instead of "data" in the OBJECT element to identify the SVG file.

If you don't see a diagram with a line, circle, and triange, install a SVG viewer like this one from Adobe.

If you see a line, circle, and triangle, place your cursor anywhere on the diagram and press down the right mouse button to see a menu of things you can do. Choose "View Source" to see the SVG code used to make this diagram.
