xsl fo include image
Thanks David.

Fine so the only way to inlcude images into an XSL-FO transformation is by using the "<fo:external-graphic>" tag.

Are there any ways of using the "<fo:external-graphic>" tag in a scalable manner? i.e. run through my XML document, match all the "<image>" tags and populate a table?

Thanks, Craig.

But when doing an XSLT & XSL-FO transformation to PDF I have only come
across a way to include an external image using the "<fo:external-graphic>"
tag. This does not help in that I can only do one image at a time and the
solution is not scalable - I need to be able to populate the table in my PDF
in the same manner as the table in my XHTML including images.

XHTML <img element can similarly only include one image at a time.
In what way do you think that the FO version is any more restrictive
than the XHTML one? From the XSLT stylesheet perspective you'd them in
identical ways.

Are there any other ways of including images into an XSL-FO transformation?
