If an SVG image is embedded via one of the following methods, any xlinked images within the SVG fail to render. * <img> tag * CSS background * CSS content attribute Inline SVG does not exhibit this problem. Test cases: * https://rtrvrtg.github.io/svg-embed-xlink-tests/index.html (xlinked raster image) * https://rtrvrtg.github.io/svg-embed-xlink-tests/index-vector.html (xlinked vector image) Test results across browsers: * https://rtrvrtg.github.io/svg-embed-xlink-tests/test-results.md
Thanks for the bug report! This is actually exactly the intended behavior. This is a duplicate of (invalid) bug 739726 -- see discussion there for more. (And if you like, see bug 628747 where we made this change.)
