FF handle them quite well.

The problem is that there is too much informations :).

By the way: in the SVG files there is a lot of redundant informations.
Graphviz should realy use CSS instead of SVG presentation attributes.

Using CSS to factor out common style should reduce image size a lot.
I would like to see a Graphics package for Haskell, based on 
SVG/libVG/Cairo/PDF imaging model.
