That's the problem.  Your image is 212.09mm x 190.5mm but the available
space inside your region-body is only 200.4mm x 189.9mm.

page_height - page_top - page_bottom - body_top - body_bottom =
max-height of region-body content area. (279.4mm (11in) - 5mm - 5mm -
39mm - 30mm = 200.4mm)

page_width - page_left - page_right - body_left - body_right = max-width
of region-body content area (215.9mm (8.5in) - 5mm - 5mm - 8mm - 8mm =

<fo:external-graphic content-height="scale-to-fit" height="200.4mm"
content-width="scale-to-fit" width="189.9mm" src="url({@href})"/> works.

I have found useful to
convert between mm and inches to determine dimensions - I recommend
using the same standard of measurement.

Hi Angela:

Here is my page and body margin information.

<fo:simple-page_master master-name="Graphics" page_height="11in"
    page_width="8.5in" margin-top="5mm" margin-bottom="5mm"
    margin-left="5mm" margin-right="5mm">
<fo:region-body region-name="Graphics-region-body" margin-top="39mm"
    margin-bottom="30mm" margin-left="8mm" margin-right="8mm"/>
<fo:region-before region-name="Graphics-region-before" extent="44mm"/>
<fo:region-after region-name="Graphics-region-after" extent="50mm"

I have tried playing with the margins and set them to
0.5in for both the page and region-body. Then I set
the content-height and content-width values to

This again says "no space for element to recover".

Thanks for all your help.
