jQuery 1.x doesn't support setting load events on <embed> elements, which causes problems when trying to embed svg, on which one needs to wait on the load to interact with from js.

Here's a jsfiddle to illustrate the problem, switch out the jQuery library versions to see the problem: http://jsfiddle.net/v7nC7/

I forgot to mention that 2.x gets this right.

We can't reliably attach data to embed elements in IE<8. The docs say:

Due to the way browsers interact with plugins and external code, the .data() method cannot be used on <object> (unless it's a Flash plugin), <applet> or <embed> elements.

If you want that to work cross-browser, use jQuery 2.x where all supported browsers can do the job.
