It's possible that this doesn't work for *inline* SVG, but in general, 
the <object> element does this. Here's an example:

<object type="image/svg+xml" data="image.svg" height="200" width="200">
   <object type="image/png" data="image.png">
     An image of something.

SVG gets rendered if the browser can render it; if not, PNG gets 
rendered, and if that's also not possible, the text gets rendered.

Regards,    Martin.
