Subject RE: PDF Compression and IE5

Have not resolved it yet. If/when I do I will be sure to let the list know.
At the moment it works fine without compression.

There really is not any magic to running FOP in a servlet. Isn't there an
example of this out there somewhere already? If not, you could just take a
CommandLine example, stitch the code into an HttpServlet putting the code
into doGet/doPost and passing response.getOutputStream() for the output. In
the past I had problems with the generated PDF displaying properly, but
since upgrading everything (Acrobat, IE, Windows2000, etc) it has all worked
- until compression :-(

My code would probably not be useful as it is part of a much larger
application (basically a Cocoon like thing).

I read your comment regarding the use of FOP in a servlet.  Did you manage
to resolve the issue.  If so, I was wondering if the source for running FOP
in a servlet will be avilable in the CVS distribution, or if not perhaps it
could be added as a sample?

Have a merry Christmas and new year.
