I have an svg file created in Inkscape app. I am wondering whether the
Android web browser can render svg file or not.
If not, is there a plugin that I can install to make it work?

Not that I am aware of.

Unless somebody has ported the experimental SVG-in-WebKit support to
Android, no.

 Is this something that will be supported in the future, assuming the
experimental code goes through the propper testing and becomes stable
for release?

2. using ASE and playing sound

I have a python application (anki) running under ASE. It is a simple
web server that uses the browser as a UI. My only issues are playing
sound, which are stored locally. On the iphone, anki uses a command
line app (play) to play the mp3 files. Unfortunately, there is no
command line app that I can call that takes a filename as an arg and
plays it.

What are my options with android?

- write a sound service that sits and listens for a filename to play;
possibly listening on a port for filename

- write an Java-app that I call from within python that forks off and
loads a specified file, plays it and then exits. Can you call other
java apps from ASE?

- wait till the browser supports the <audio> tag. I guess this is
html5, but am unaware if this will be on android any time soon.
