Seeing as it's an Adobe product, it's probably testing to see if your
browser supports the Adobe version of SVG, which "....supports much of
the W3C Recommended Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) 1.0 Specification ",
whilst gecko1.9 et al is at 1.1 these days.
It's just a shame they binned support for it at the start of 2009
