problem with inserting graphic dynamically

I'm using XALAN Java 2 to translate "xsl" stylesheets to "fo" and the result
to "pdf"
I have to insert a graphic using URL from xml file

<fo:block text-align="center">
	<fo:external-graphic height="21cm" width="18cm" scaling="uniform">
		<xsl:attribute name="src">
			<xsl:value-of select="additional/filePath"/>
		</xsl:attribute>
	</fo:external-graphic>
</fo:block>

This works fine, but all images are scaled to the specified height and
width.
If I remove this attributes, all images greater than page size
	(<fo:simple-page-master master-name="A4" page-width="210mm">)
produce an infinite loop on translation.
I tried to use "max-height" and "max-width", but xalan ignores this and
tells me:
	Warning: property - "max-height" is not implemented yet.
	Warning: property - "max-width" is not implemented yet.

Can anyone tell me another solution to find out whether the image must be
scaled to fit the page size or not?

ThanX Torsten
