I can create the png form if needed, but I'm concerned about
the error (if it is such).

I'm wondering if Bobs pages are out of date here?
I do recall 'prompting' the IE user to get/install the svg viewer from
Adobe. Not sure if that's still available. Then the reader would know
something was amiss. 

SVG is so much better than bit-mapped though.
