While were suggesting enhancements for the AWT window, here is a change I
made to the code Ivan Latysh sent me last week.  I needed to process XML:FO
which is dynamically generated and not .xml and .xsl files.  So I modified
the run method to take an InputSource object (containing XML:FO) instead of
two File objects.  I would like to see this option added if possible.  It
makes using the AWT window much easier when the report to be viewed is build
from data retrieved from a database by a server and sent to a client
application or applet for viewing.  It also works well with Java Web Start,
where the placing of .xml and .xsl files on the workstation is a hassle due
to the JWS security sandbox.
