There remain incompatibilities between the SVG and ODF specifications.
Outline of the history of these problems here:


I have tried to collect SVG-related OASIS (ODF) issues in a few posts (#22

It is also worth noting that SVGs created in Inkscape need to be saved using

as Inkscape extended the SVG format.

Best wishes, Owen.
