Subject Re: raster (jpeg, png) graphics in Batik SVG rasterizer under Cocoon

Hi Marc,

This is in line with Joerg's idea, and more or less my best guess too.

To answer the question Jeroen asked, I'm still seeing the problem in 
Cocoon 2.1.10 under Windows XP.

In the SVG, the URIs to the jpegs are relative. How is the base uri 
of the SVG defined for the rasterizer, if it is generated 
dynamically? (The jpegs are relative to the source XML, and as I 
said, when pointing Batik at the generated SVGs, it finds the jpegs; 
it's the rasterizer that doesn't.)

So it sounds to me like Joerg is on the right track:

Marc, are you implying that if I use absolute URIs that'll work? 
Worth a try, for sure. (And something I should have thought of. :-)

If anyone has any other good ideas I'd love to hear them.
