Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] fop/xsltproc, External SVG Issue

I can't quite tell from your example, but is that mediaobject inside the book's info element? If so, then that's why it isn't showing up. By default, the stylesheet only outputs certain elements from the book info element, and mediaobject isn't one of them. Titlepages are generally individualistic, meaning they need some customization to match the author's expectations, so the stylesheets provide a mechanism to easily customize the titlepages. Let me know if that's the issue here.

As a test to see if the SVG itself is working, you could copy and paste the mediaobject element into a section, where it will be acted upon and should work.

I'm struggling to embed SVG into a docbook5 document. I don't know if
this is an issue of how I'm coding, or if this is an issue with the
tools being used...any advice on solving this is welcomed.

I am using xsltproc with docbook5 docbook.xsl to produce a ".fo" file
(Linux o/s), with the original XML validated error free under both
xmllint and jing. I am thing using fop to create a number of output
formats from the ".fo" file...ps, pdf, rtf. The section of code with the
svg being added refers to an external file, and in no case does any
error or warning ever show up. Here's the sample code:
<!DOCTYPE book [
<!ENTITY version "0.1 unreleased">

<book xmlns="http://docbook.org/ns/docbook";
      xmlns:xi="http://www.w3.org/2001/XInclude"; version="5.0">
                *<imagedata align="left" format="svg"
                <phrase>CC BY-SA License</phrase>
                <para>This document is licensed under Creative Commons
BY-SA License</para>

I have tried the fileref using full path, relative path, so on. There is
never a complaint, the svg file itself displays and apparently is valid
under a number of svg apps, and everything else shows up as expected. I
have even tried intentionally making a very impossible and invalid file
path, I cannot get a complaint from any of the tools. Am I using the XML
wrong, or are my tools missing something under valid code?
