Hi Jason,

Does this mean that XSmiles is no longer jdk1.1 dependant? Thats good.

There is no current work on these areas.
The first one would probably not be very difficult and is an area that
someone could have a look at right now.

The second point, I don't really know what scripting support would be.
Do you mean dynamic xsl:fo or some other dom scripting? This has not
been discussed at all.

So if you want to help with the integration of the projects you could
look at the design and implementation of the AWT (swing) renderer.
