Hello Patrick,

We are using a patched FOP (0.20.2) for a credit system in a bank. The speed 
is fine since we have a server where speed does not matter (Solaris 8 with 
SUN Jdk).
we are printing about 1000 documents per day. Most of them have 1-2 pages. 
Some up to 20.
Currently we are developing a report generator with FOP. The Reports will 
have up to 1000 pages.

Input format: .fo with special tags for pre processing and data insertion
Output format : PDF
Clients for printing (Acrobat Reader): WinNT, Win2000, Win95, OS/2; AR: 3.0 
(OS/2), 4.0, 4.5, 5.0 in almost any combination.

Our Customers are satisfied with our printing solution because the old one we 
have replaced was using ms word with embedded macros... (OK - it's not realy 
a printing 'solution'..., but it had done its job exept with OS/2 (Word Pro) 
or Word 2000)

Some comments to FOP:

1. Fop does sometimes hang in an endless loop with entities like & < 
and > (these are the only entities we are using; Lang: de, encoding ansi) 
if the first word of the line is too long for the whole line in a small table 
cell. - thats why we have patched FOP - but it's more a workaround than a 
patch and does not resolve the problem. If someone want to get the patch I 
will send it.

2. Fop sometimes switches the lines up and down with entities or inline
