  +      <p>Basic FOP installation consists of first unzipping the <code>.gz</code> 
file that is the distribution medium, then unarchiving the resulting <code>.tar</code> 
file in a directory/folder that is convenient on your system. Please consult your 
operating system documentation or Zip application software documentation for 
instructions specific to your site.</p>

  +      <title>Problems</title>
  +      <p>Some Mac OSX users have experienced filename truncation problems using 
Stuffit to unzip and unarchive their distribution media. This is a legacy of older Mac 
operating systems, which had a 31-character pathname limit. Several Mac OSX users have 
recommended that Mac OSX users use the shell command <code>tar -xzf</code> instead.</p>

  +    <p>Review the batch file fop.bat or the shell script fop.sh to see how FOP is 
  +    <p>The standard scripts for starting FOP require that the environment variable 
JAVA_HOME be set to a path pointing to the appropriate Java installation on your 
system. Macintosh OSX includes a Java environment as part of its distribution. We are 
told by Mac OSX users that the path to use in this case is 
<code>/Library/Java/Home</code>. <strong>Caveat: </strong>We suspect that, as Apple 
releases new Java environments and as FOP upgrades the minimum Java requirements, the 
two will inevitably not match on some systems. Please see <jump

as it becomes available.</p>
