Is it me, or do the examples in fop-0.20.4rc/docs/examples/svg not work.

On Linux with Sun J2SDK 1.4.0_01 it compiles fine.

It works fine, just two things:

  1) If baseDir is set for example to "/opt/fop", FOP doesn't
     add "/" at the end of baseDir as other systems commonly does,
     so you can start use path for fonts like this:

       <font metrics-file="../fop-fonts/arial-regular.xml"
         <font-triplet name="Arial" style="normal" weight="normal"/>

  2) It would be nice, if baseDir can be set like Java property
     on the command line, for example:

       java -cp $FOP_CP -DbaseDir=/opt/fop org.apache.fop.apps.Fop

     Then there won't be any absolute paths in userconfig.xml.

I have one more question. Will there be any improvements with
implementation of last-line-end-indent property in 0.20.4?
DocBook stylesheets use it for generating TOC and without this
property it doesn't look nice.
