Subject Re: representative example needed
Date Mon, 07 Feb 2005 11:21:09 GMT
Hi Julian,

Thank you very much. It looks very much like what i need. While the standard
FOP examples are great for developers, they are not ideally suitable for
demonstrations/presentations/promotions/... on the management level.

I remember you from the XSL List, though i have not been able to participate
in it for approx. 1.5 years already (unfortunately). Your answers were
always of great help.


Regards,
Ilya
