Yes, that works for PDF, but for AFP, the default resolution is 240 dpi.
Not specifying a renderer-resolution would make the default resolution
72 dpi from the target-resolution. I guess I'll just add a check to see
if the target-resolution is on the default value in which case AFP would
still use 240 dpi.

I can agree with that.

Thanks a lot,
