Embedding SVG in XSL Formatting Objects

The other XML application that supports inline SVG is Extensible Stylesheet Language Formatting Objects (XSL-FO). This is a markup language used to specify page formatting of text. You may use the Apache Software Foundation’s FOP software tool to take a document written in XSL-FO and transform it to Adobe’s PDF (Portable Document Format). You may see the XSL-FO specification at http://www.w3.org/TR/xsl/ or read a brief introduction in Chapter 13 of XML in a Nutshell by Elliotte Rusty Harold and W. Scott Means. FOP is available at http://xml.apache.org.

Example F-2 lays out a document with text and SVG graphics for the cover of what must surely be one of the more eccentric Compact Discs ever recorded. The graphic has nothing whatsoever to do with the subject of the disc; it’s merely an existence proof.
