Subject Re: Problems with FOP ContentHandler interface (at fop 0_14_0)
Date Fri, 06 Oct 2000 21:30:18 GMT
Hello Mike,

Are you using the standard 0.14 jar or the latest CVS? I fixed something
that sounds similar to this a while ago (late August), but I think it
may not be in the jar, only in the CVS. With the fix, it should use the
namespace uri and local name and not expect to see fo:xxx.

Good luck,
Karen Lease
