FO: put text on top of a graphic, FOP versus AH

Mark Giffin
I have a cover graphic for a PDF that fills the page, and I need to put
the title text on top of it.

The FO code below works with FOP, and the text is placed on top of the
graphic. But when I run it with Antenna House, the graphic is placed on
top of the text, obscuring the text.

How can I get this to work with Antenna House?

Thanks,
Mark

FIXED: Re: FO: put text on top of a graphic, FOP versus AH

Mark Giffin
I fixed this. I changed the value of @absolute-position to "absolute"
from "fixed" (see below) and then Antenna House put the text on top of
the graphic. Any idea why this works this way?

<fo:block-container absolute-position="absolute" top="-1mm">
         <fo:block>
            <fo:external-graphic content-height="138%"
src="url(file:/C:/path/dita-ot-3.2.1/temp/Customization/OpenTopic/common/artwork/CoverArt.jpg)"

           />
         </fo:block>

Thanks,
Mark
