Subject Re: Assembling a XMLLayout event at the other end?
Date Sun, 08 Mar 2009 22:04:16 GMT
Scott,

Cheers for the swift response and the link. I'd seen that before but
obviously hadn't tried hard enough!

I had a bit of an issue getting the server properties to accept the plugin
statements using SimpleSocketServer so had to go in and make my own server
using the solution outlined here [1] but all is good now.

Thanks again,

Gavin.
