You can add an SVG image using the <img> just the same as any other image.

You just need the .svg extension and make sure it's linked inside the img folder which is of course relative to the documents location.

Good luck :)

it is looking for:

 <img src="img/star.svg">

<img scr="img /star.svg"alt=include in the web"> but it keeps saying be sure to include scr to <img> element.
