13 years ago uses the old SVG mime
type. When I click a link to an SVG there, Firefox asks if I want to open it in
Adobe.  Firefox should accept this mime type (and render the SVG in Firefox)
unless there is a good reason not to.

The good reason not to is that now there is a reason for them to fix it. I see
no reason to support this.
I would tend to agree with Anne.

Site owner emailed to say he had fixed the server configuration issue. There's still work to do on the actual content, but that's another issue, and he plans to fix that over the new year. Marking fixed.
