We would be real interested in TIFF rendering from FOP since our application
includes a fax component.  My only concern is the use of the AWTRenderer.
Whenever we use the AWTRenderer the output (on screen and print) is not as
crisp and sharp as the PDF version.  The spacing of letters and words is a
major issue with the AWTRenderer (as was mentioned in a previous thread).
If however a TIFF renderer could be produced that does NOT have these issues
we would be real happy to use it.

I think you're the second one who announced such a TIFF renderer in a
short period of time. Personally, I would like to see a bitmap renderer
in FOP even though I don't have an immediate need myself. I'd like to offer
my sponsorship. If no other committer wants to take it, I'm going to look
at the two submissions as soon as possible and see how best to integrate
one (or a combination of both) into FOP. If someone is against that move,
please speak up.
