Maybe. I didn't try it but I don't see a reason that it shouldn't work
as long as you ensure that a Sun Java PlugIn is installed (Microsoft VM?
I don't think so.) and the application is running in an intranet. I
mention the latter because the loading times for FOP over the internet
will be a killer:
fop.jar: 1.8MB
batik.jar: 2.2MB
jimi-1.0.jar: 445MB

It's probably better if you provide a server-based solution for creating
your documents. On the other side, you always have to transfer the
documents, too. And they may be big...
