I don't know why, but SVG files get injected directly into the worksheet HTML, unlike PDF or other filetypes which just get a link. Here is a workaround,

```
P=plot(sin(x), (x,0,pi))
fn = 'plot.svg'
P.save(DATA+fn, figsize=[2,2])
html(r'<a href="data/'+fn+r'">plot</a>')
```

It's not very nice, but it does the job. You can now right click on the link and download the SVG file.

By the way, SVG is injected because it is a "native" html thingie, I think, like pngs. See https://github.com/sagemath/sagenb/blob/master/sagenb/notebook/cell.py#L2353 and see the whole list of file types that do different things at https://github.com/sagemath/sagenb/blob/master/sagenb/notebook/cell.py#L2342 I'm not sure exactly what the right long-term fix for this would be.

Hmm, strange - I get a hyperlink when I do a plot `P` and do `P.save('fun.pdf')` but not with `P.save('fun.svg')`. I don't expect it with `'fun.png'` but those are easy to just drag and drop. I'd like to know how to do this too!
