Subject RE: Using CSS in Batik
Date Wed, 14 Dec 2005 07:09:28 GMT
Hi, thanks for the reply. 

Sorry, I wasn't specific enough in my question. I am familiar with using CSS
in SVG, but I have recently begun using the Apache Batik SVG java libraries,
using the SVG DOM, to create SVG dynamically from java.

Currently I am using code like this to style my Elements:

text.setAttributeNS(null, "style",

And what I would like to be able to do instead is import my stylesheet into
the SVG DOC that I generate through Java.

I can see there is a style sheet class, but no examples on how to use it.
That's really what I was after.

Any further advice very gratefully received.

Thanks in advance again,

   You might try looking at the SVG specification.  You use the
'style' element to reference CSS style sheets.  You might also take
a look at samples/tests/spec/styling in general and 
'alternateStylesheet.svg' in particular.

   You don't reference a style class with in the selector selects
elements from your document that they apply to based on the selector
associated with the style.
