Serve SVG with the Correct Content Type

If you are trying to use SVG like <img src="image.svg"> or as a CSS background-image, and the file is linked to correctly and everything seems right, but the browser isn't displaying it, it might be because your server is serving it with an incorrect content-type.

Add this to your .htaccess file at the root to fix it:

AddType image/svg+xml .svg .svgz

Posting Code

Markdown is supported in the comment area, so you can write inline code in backticks like `this` or multiline blocks of code in in triple backtick fences like this:

```
<div>Example code</div>
```

You don't need to escape code in backticks, Markdown does that for you. If anything screws up, contact us and we can fix it up for you.
