<svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
<image xlink:href="any.jpg" x="0" y="0" height="200" width="200" />

from other bugs it seems this is a regression.
jpg can be local, remote, or another domain, nothing works for me.

eg URL given above does not display png
but does of course using:
note this is same domain!

marking as regression as other bugs appear to indicate this worked in the past.

I think what you're saying is that <svg:image xlink:href="anyimage.jpg"> doesn't work?

So in other words, that image display and loading seems to be broken for the svg <image> tag.  I've not yet verified in ToT, but I have seen that in my Safari 4 developer preview it loads just fine.

I guess you mean the link at URL that does not work. SVG supports the <image> element and of course it supports jpg,png,...

The example behind the url is different. It renders an SVG as Image. The SVG that is displayed via the image element contains images itself. And this images are not displayed. Looks like a external resource can't load other external resources. 

Is it that what you mean?

Which sounds like bug 15443.
