Hi Praveen,

fo2pdf cannot resolve relative links (whether they be http: or file:

What has worked for me in getting SVG images in PDF is this:

     1. Make sure that in a browser I can get the PNG or JPEG that is
        generated from SVG via an absolute URL.
     2. Use that URL as the "src" attribute for the
        "fo:external-graphic" element.
     3. Generate the PDF and you should see the image in the doc.

Hope this helps,
