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);
