Note: I'm new to the world of Docbook, so this could be
my misunderstanding.

Hi, I've been trying to create an example text which
includese some graphics (PNG, SVG), to be processed by
FOP to create a PDF representation.

In reading the stylesheet documentation, I came across
the xxx.extensions parameters. From the description, I
assumed this was solely for enabling extra (e.g.
non-XSL) functionality available in the various FO parsers.

However, no matter what I did, I couldn't convince
xsltproc & and XSL stylesheets to include external
graphics references to my SVG image. In reading
through fo/graphics.xsl I discovered that the allowed
external-graphics types is also dependant on the
setting of the xxx.extension parameters. Perhaps this
dependancy should also be mentioned in the stylesheet
documentation?

Thanks for all the great work

Regards

Julian Rendell

    I added this to all the *.extension parameter reference pages.
