[xep-support] SVG as a background image with scale-to-fit

Hi everyone,

I've been trying to use an SVG as a background image that I can scale
to create the elusive strikethrough I need and I'm having problems
with the rx:background-content-width etc. extensions.

This is what I'm trying.

        It should also be entirely possible to embed <fo:inline
padding="5px" background-image="src('strikethrough.svg')" background-
position="top left" rx:background-content-width="scale-to-fit"
rx:background-content-height="scale-to-fit" rx:background-scaling="non-
uniform" background-repeat="no-repeat">SVG Content</fo:inline> at any
point in the page.

<svg version="1.1" viewBox="0 0 100 20" perserveAspectRatio="none"
        <line x1 = "2" y1 = "18" x2 = "98" y2 = "2" stroke = "black" stroke-
width = "2" />

What I expected was that the SVG image would be scaled to the width
and height of the inline element to create the needed strikethrough.
However, it appears that the SVG renders but does so without any

Anyone any ideas why this isn't working as expected? According to my
sys-admin we are using the latest release of XEP.
