I'm i a desperate situation - must use IE8 with Adobe viewer to handle SVG image.
 I'm modifying SVG image in it acessing its DOM by ECMA/Java script works OK.
But now I need to extract XML code of the changed image by script and send it to even a cgi gateway for making a transformation, something like:

var mydesiredXMLcode=myEmbedDoc.documentElement.innerHTML   which works in other browsers such as FF.

Have no idea how to do it, neither google does...

Thx

Unlike full browsers the Adobe plugin doesn't treat SVG documents as HTML5 documents.  That it is supports only the SVG specification, not any HTML support like innertHTML.

However, SVG documents *are* DOM documents, so you can create what you want by walking the DOM with firstChild, nextSibling, etc.

E.g. var myXML = SerializeNode(myEmbedDoc.firstChild);

You have you write serializeNode and prefix the XML result with the <?xml> instruction.
