I've successfully used the Adobe SVG plugin with Mozilla and Firefox, 
so I would imagine it would work in newer versions of Netscape.  As for 
the compatibility, I've mostly had trouble with the embedded fonts.  If 
I save from Illustrator 'using system fonts', then I can open the SVG 
with sodipodi on Linux.
