Subject: RE: DOCBOOK-APPS: FOP and SVG?
I haven't done any work with SVG, but I do know that FOP has problems with the src="url(filename)" syntax. Go into the resulting FO file and change src="url(image.svg)" to src="image.svg". You should also be sure that image.svg exists in the same directory as the FO file. If that doesn't work, try to capture FOP's error message concerning this line and send that.

Hi, I'm a new DocBook user. I'm in the process of evaluating DocBook XML and Saxon/FOP for possible use at my company. So far I'm very happy with both DocBook and Saxon/FOP. However, I can't get FOP to handle SVG images however hard I try. This really bothers me since I really want us to be able to use SVG for PDF output. I'm using the following versions of software on a Solaris 8 machine with JDK 1.3.1: * DocBook XML 4.2 * DocBook XSL Stylesheets 1.57.0 * Saxon 6.5.2 * FOP 0.20.4 I have attached a simple DocBook document (book.xml) who references a simple SVG image (image.svg). Saxon successfully creates a .fo file, whose SVG image reference looks ok in my eyes (see code snippet below). FOP then creates a .pdf file from this .fo file but the SVG image doesn't show up. I used the following command lines: > java com.icl.saxon.StyleSheet -x org.apache.xml.resolver.tools.ResolvingXMLReader -y org.apache.xml.resolver.tools.ResolvingXMLReader -r org.apache.xml.resolver.tools.CatalogResolver -u -o book.fo book.xml ~steby/xml/docbook-xsl/fo/docbook.xsl > java org.apache.fop.apps.Fop -fo book.fo -pdf book.pdf SVG image reference in generated .fo file: <fo:external-graphic src="url(image.svg)" width="auto" height="auto" content-width="auto" content-height="auto"/> I would be extremely grateful if anybody could shed some light on this matter. As it is now, I can't get any further with the evaluation; SVG support is a show stopper. Regards, Stefan Bylund
