I'm replying to this messaging for two purposes: 1. Recognize that I did receive this message, if that makes someone happy :) . (This is the original "Page (re)calculation" message, not the repost.) 2. Wow! You are doing that with FOP? And here's my question to all the 'fop-users': How are you using FOP? I'm using it (plan to, pending approval and load testing, etc., etc.,) in an servlet environment where a DTD, a XSLT stylesheet, and a simple API is provided so that any servlet can call a few line of code to generate a PDF stream, which they send to the browser for printing: DocGen dg = new DocGen(); byte ba = dg.genDoc("<doc><h1>Title</h1><p>Testing, 1, 2, 3, ...</p></doc>", DocGen.GEN_PDF); Response.setContentType("application/pdf"); Response.getWriter().write(ba); -- Weiqi Gao [EMAIL PROTECTED]
