that works great, thanks.

however, what happens if i do not know teh height/width of the image or 
i'm scaling the image during inclusion in the PDF? what i have is 
something like this:

	<fo:basic-link external-destination="url(http://www.foo.com)">
	   <fo:external-graphic src="url(foo.png)"

in this case even if i know that foo.png is 600px x 100px, it is scaled 
to fit the page. is there any way to extract the scaled value?

i'm not opposed to resizing these images to be the "right" size as i'm 
only using this on a title page and i know what images will be included, 
so i dont really need to make this work for all cases. i just wondered 
if it's possible. thanks again for your suggestion.
