Software: SVG Red Circle Test

Can I include SVG pictures in blog entries without mucking around with <embed> tags and separate files? If you have an SVG- and Namespace-aware browser such as Firefox, can you see a red circle below this paragraph?

Probably not. If you check this page's properties (context menu View Page Info) Blogger has sent this file with Content-Type: text/html, so Firefox goes into quirks mode and displays this file as old-fashioned HTML, ignoring the svg elements. I tried changing the template's <meta> element to change the file's Content-Type but no go.
