Thanks for the helping our project Richard!  FOP/XSL is a fascinating 
mathematical equation, and the clearer and rawer we can make that 
equation, the more it will attract the best computer scientists and 
mathematicians from around the world to help us work on determining it.  
Reading your credentials on your website is only further confirming this 
for me.

(Sorry though <red face/>, I hope someone else can help out with this 
patch--renderers have not been my focus for a long time...)
