device. So, things like CMYK & Pantone spot colors are important to
I've landed at RenderX, because I'm using Batik, which uses Apache's FOP
backend to generate PDFs from SVG. However, Apache's FOP doesn't handle
colors as well as RenderX supposedly does, so I'm here.
Now - my question to the list is quite simple: can I use RenderX as a
backend to Batik? If not, or if the process would be excessively
complex, can (should?) I use RenderX directly to generate a PDF from
SVG? If so, I'm guessing I'll need to wrap a bit of XML/XSL-FO around my
SVG. Without getting too deep into XSL-FO, what would be the
base-minimum amount of markup I would need to be able to start testing
