Incidentally, RenderX has a nice extension called rx:meta-info that holds the PDF document information of Author, Producer, Title, etc. We provide that functionality programmatically to the user by providing methods in FOUserAgent, but the RenderX method seems better because nondevelopers can use it as well.
I wonder if FOP should switch to a fox:metadata element, that can store these parameters, and also possibly allow in the future for additional elements such as the PS settings Dave White needs below. (However, in order to limit spaghetti code, I would rather we not support both an extension element and setting methods in FOUserAgent for any given property--choose one or the other for each property.) Thoughts? Also, if RenderX has an extension called rx:create-widget, are we allowed to create a fox:create-widget, or we can but only if we name it something else: e.g., fox:construct-widget? Has anyone discussed this before? I think we need a Lawyer Maestro here... ;) Glen --- Jeremias Maerki <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> wrote: > > My long term wish list contains PPD support for the > PS renderer which > will also include extension to XSL-FO that will > allow you to control PS > generation in a more detailed way. > > On 08.10.2004 15:43:09 Dave_S_White wrote: > > Is a FOP extension a candidate for this?
