Yes, there's a lot of interest in this renderer,
apparently, and with the more publicity, the more that
that will increase.

Be careful that you're working within the framework of
XSL (i.e., using the relevant properties for this.)

Sounds very good.  Please learn the 1.0 rendering

porting it over.

We can include a link on our resources page.  We're
not too motivated to continue with 0.20.x series, it
has "keep" property problems.

Sure, that's what we have Web Maestro for.  We don't

don't pay him anything, but thankfully he hasn't
seemed to notice that yet. ;)
