There are a few SVG editors available to edit SVG files.

Since the Namespace links, by default renders an error as displayed in the "Microsoft Edge" Web browser, as per this example as well as in other Web browsers such as Google Chrome, etc.), the report headers seem to be displayed correctly, but the data in the report details does not display.

If a report is saved as a "Scalable Vector Graphics file" file format, it will save the file in separate pages. An example of a one page saved "Scalable Vector Graphics file" will also export numbering bullets (numbering) as objects for each page.
