Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Fo and SVG

Whoops - airball!
The SVG should be handled natively in FOP right now! My last reply was for using PDF images embedded into FO in FOP 1.0.  Using PDFs do help with visual clarity in FOP  IF you have vector based PDFs (not bitmapped imaged). We use PDFs for equipment drawings in our docs. You can find this plugin at http://www.jeremias-maerki.ch/download/fop/pdf-images/
That said the XML code is still a valid method for SVG in figures.
Sorry to confuse the issue.

I use SVG files in my formal figures and they work very well. However, if you are using FOP, you need to install a addon package so that FOP can deal with the SVG natively. The package I use is "fop-pdf-images". Its a jar file that gets put in the FOP classpath.
So this is how it looks as a figure:

      <title>Basic XML Documentation Flow</title>
            <imageobject role="fo">
                  <imagedata align="center" fileref="basicFlow.svg" width="5in" format="SVG" />
            <imageobject role="html">
                  <imagedata align="center" fileref="basicFlow.png" width="5in" format="PNG" />

I am using fop for pdf output.  I have successfully used svg images in my fo covers using docbook customizations with specific fo output.

Now I want to use svg images in figures.  Has anyone done a docbook customization to do the "right thing" for using svg image files as formal figures?
