Subject RE: Trouble with forrest's SVGSerializer from cocoon

 David and Ross,
    Thanks. It worked by deleting my snippet and letting the default mapping
from the resource.xmap of forrest work on it as adviced by Ross. boxes.svg
got displayed correctly.

   Thanks again

No. I think that you are not understanding.
Ross was saying that Forrest does this svn2png
automatically, You do not need a special project
sitemap. The resources.xmap is part of main forrest.

Everything should just work out-of-the box if you
put files in xdocs/images/foo.svg and refer to the
output documents as images/foo.png

Did you see issue FOR-229
Some SVG files (but not all) need the DTD declaration
to be commented-out.
