Subject Re: FOP 1.0 TIFF Image Black Pages and Poor Image Quality
Date Mon, 11 Oct 2010 16:31:25 GMT
That sounds like the config file is not loaded at all. Have you tried
running the document from the command-line using the -c parameter? If
the config file is malformed, something like this can also happen but
you've already posted your config and that seems to be fine. Please also
check FOP's log output for possible hints.
