Hi Sorin,

I am happy with what I discovered, albeit via big
meandering.  I have no more issues.  Here's the
"big picture" as you asked.

I have an svg file I created via Inkscape, call it
SampleFile.svg.  And using a sample given by
  http://tavmjong.free.fr/INKSCAPE/MANUAL/html/Web-Use.html
I created a webpage:
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE html
     PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
     "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
  <head>
   <title>SVG Included with <object> tag in an XHTML File</title>
  </head>
  <body>

   <h2>s o m e   h e a d i n g</h2>

   <object type="image/svg+xml" data="SampleFile.svg">
    Browser does not support SVG files!
   </object>

  </body>
</html>
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

which works fine.  My question was how to make a link
(ie., href) thereby users can click the link and get
my file displayed.  Ultimately, I have 46 files I want
to display, but I want any user to pick ones they want
via a bunch of hrefs.  That was/is what I am after.

I didn't/don't intend to create a web page via Inkscape.
I think that's what Nicu is doing.  By looking at the
example above, I made things overly difficult.  What I
am now doing is to have the filename at the right side
of the equal sign of href specification and it works simply
and elegantly (so long as I use firefox v3.01, which is
not a problem for me).

Thanks for your helping hand.  I appreciate it.

Tena

I can help you more but ..I can't get the big picture ...U want a SVG
website designed on Inkscape ?.
hmm, interesting - why you don't wanna HTML tags? and a normal ( HTML )
website - where you can put as many images ( or SVG or Flash files ) as you
want ?

Don't try to generate HTML from Inkscape ( as I know ..this feature is not
planned very soon ), and also this is a nonsense.

Do your graphics on Inkscape, save your work as JPG, then use Gimp to cut
your graphics on pieces, then assemble pieces with an HTML editor eg.
Kompozer / Seamonkey / Dreamweaver / Namo Wen Editor / Microsoft Expression
Web.

I use first 3 editors because I use 98% of my PC time Ubuntu and only 2% of
time ...XP for different Corel Draw conversions.

My last 2 websites ( both are not finished yet ) are done in Inkscape - all
graphics ( ...less photos ofcourse ). Then I use Dreamweaver to put images
on tables. The result = a sum of webpages linked each other by ...links;).


Now the general idea is to tell us what are you need specifically then we
can help you in a more practical an concise way.

..............
Type, Role, Arcrole, Title, Show, Actuate -> they are SVG specific rules -
no need to know them to make webpages
.............

That is, I'll wait for your description ( if is not such a big secret
ofcourse ;)).

For NICU

Nicu, tu esti in echipa de dezvoltatori Inkscape ?
