SVG Image Linking Not Working?

I've replaced the standard gif line with

<object data=”img/love-at-first-bite.svg” type=”image/svg+xml” class=”chart”>
    <a href=”img/love-at-first-bite.svg”>
                <!--[if lte IE 8]-->
                <img src="img/love-at-first-bite.gif" alt="Love At First Bite">
                <!--[endif]-->
        </a>
</object>

It won't go through? I've also replaced the img entry in the css with img, object {}

Why won't it work?

Check your img src file extension.

Isn't it meant to be gif as IE8 and lower don't support scaleable SVGs?
