That's OK, both things mean the same and should be rendered the same.

Your problem is that you don't want centering, but auto margins. Centering, as a text-align value, refers to the alignment of content inside the <div>, but it doesn't specify how the whole <div> will be placed in the page (or screen, or other containing block). That would be done by adding "margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto;" to the sgc-3 style, but readers are allowed to ignore auto margins (and Adobe does).

There are some things you could try, one of them is this, that you already tried:

Code:
<div class="sgc-2">
   <div class="sgc-3">
    <svg xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" height="100%" max-width="100%" preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid meet" version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 293 333" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink">
      <image height="333" width="293" xlink:href="../Images/Angel72.jpg"></image><br />
    </svg>
   </div>
</div>
(remove that <br/>, it's not doing any good, I'm not even sure it's allowed in SVG)

But add "display: inline" to the sgc-3 style. Normally a <div> is "display: block", which is rendered as a "paragraph", ignoring text-align, with "display: inline" you make it behave as "character" (of whatever size), and it should obey text-align.

Or you could skip a level and go with:

Code:
<div class="sgc-2">
    <svg style="max-width:293px; max-height:333px" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2000/svg" height="100%" max-width="100%" preserveAspectRatio="xMidYMid meet" version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 293 333" xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" >
      <image height="333" width="293" xlink:href="../Images/Angel72.jpg"></image>
    </svg>
</div>
That is, set the maximum size for the <svg> element directly (again, it works in Opera). You could also try with class="sgc-3" instead. I'm not quite sure this is really compliant, but nothing is lost trying.
