This should be a fairly simple picture of the world - viewing the .gif
directly in firefox looks fine, letting svg wrap it looks bogus....however
the same svg/gif on linux and windows with firefox looks lovely.     Thanks
for any help!

Could you please send me (in private if needed) thegif and svg files ?

I'll make some tests and check my compilation options before moving to
