Thanks. Setting the content-width to an absolute value helped partially; however, I need the graphic to fill the whole page, which is 8 1/2 in., and when I set the width to anything more than 6 in it doesn't appear at all. Any ideas? Tx.

  Hi David,

  Here are a couple things to check:

  1) Check the case sensitivity of the image name. Make sure that all the upper/lower case letters in your src attribute match the file name exactly. In my experience, the image wont show up if even one letter in the image name is spelled using the wrong case.

  2) Try setting content-width to a fixed number (try "8in" for instance). Maybe the renderer is currently confused about how much room it has to render the image (and thinks it has no space)? My reasoning is that 100% of "0" is still zero. Worth checking out at least.

  I'm not sure if these will fix your problem, but they might help!

  Hi. I have a problem with (certain) graphics in XEP. My stylesheet includes the following element:
  <fo:external-graphic src="url(figures/FRONT_graphic.jpg)" content-width="100%"/>
  It is on the cover page of the document. The graphic doesn't appear at all. When I process the .fo using FOP, it comes out fine. Other graphics in the document come out normally. If you could get back to me ASAP I would greatly appreciate it (pressing deadline!). Thanx,
