Subject RE: Trouble with forrest's SVGSerializer from cocoon
Date Sun, 05 Dec 2004 06:38:04 GMT
 David, Ross,
    I tested a little more with default forrest mapping of svg and found the
following problems when I checked the pdf also:
1) if I make refernce as images/boxes.png
RESULT: boxes.png DOES Appear in webpage html. However, DOESNT appear in pdf
2) for images/boxes.jpg
RESULT: boxes.jpg DOSENT appear in BOTH
3) for images/boxes.jpeg
RESULT: boxes.jpeg DOESNT appear in BOTH

In short, boxes image appeared only as png in html pages and all other
options it didnt appear. In pdf it didnt appear at all.

Are there some other settings which are required here to make all the 3
options work correctly? The errors seem to say that the final image file was
not found so I feel it may not be passing through the pipeline for pdf (and
perhaps for jpeg/jpg also ie not converting boxes.svg -> boxes.jpg through
the pipeline). Any hints?

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