I'm using SAGE remotely and I would like to know how to save .svg files to my computer.

Hmm, strange - I get a hyperlink when I do a plot `P` and do `'fun.pdf')` but not with `'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!

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', 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.

Oh, yeah, I should have thought of using `DATA`. Nice!

By the way, SVG is injected because it is a "native" html thingie, I think, like pngs. See and see the whole list of file types that do different things at I'm not sure exactly what the right long-term fix for this would be.
