Hi there
Im new to FOP and I have been searching the web for hours now trying to find
a solution the the following challenge:
I have an XHTML file that consists of a scanned gif file and some html form
fields that are positioned on the xhtml file using css where the positioning
of of the fields are described. So if you open the xhtml file you can enter
data directly.
My challege is how to transform this into xsl:fo?? I have tried to make a
block use the image gif as background and render text on top of it but no
luck. Only the part of the image that has text on it is shown. What i need
is the full form image to be shown and then render the html form data on top
of it in the correct positions. 
I have also tried to use the external-graphics tag to render the image but
then I cant position data on top of it ;(.
1) Whats the best solution for rendering the full image and position data on
top of it?
2) How to position data on top of the image file?
Thanx in advance!
See attached gif file to get an idea on my challenge.

/Regards Michael
