I've found a solution to my problem in the "Running FOP" section on xml.apache.org.
In the end all I did was move all the jar files that came with the 0.20.2 distribution into the \jdk1.3\jre\lib\ext directory as described in "Method 3" and now my FO files with all their SVG external-graphics display perfectly in the browser.
Thanks to Alex McLintock & Keiron Liddle for their help...

Subject: Re: Displaying SVG with the Fop servlet
Most likely you have something wrong with your classpath.
The is probably an older version of the dom interfaces in you classpath.
You should firstly try putting batik first in your classpath and make sure
there are no other xml pasers etc. that shouldn't be there.
