Subject Re: Including static images into SVG files
Date Mon, 02 Dec 2002 06:13:56 GMT
Ok, point taken and noted.  
I think I will have to maintain the server part of the  
address in a separate file and do an 'include' in 
the processing file - this way it should make the
maintainance easier (even if not intuitively obvious!)

But AFAIK this is the only working solution. Both Batik and FOP only 
work with absolute paths.
