Re: printing from browser on Mac
FOP is server side java part of the apache program.
you can save your DOM structure to the SVG file and you can send the
result to the server (using posturl). Or if you have a SVG file
already you can directly send it to the server. By means of FOP PDF
can be created at the server (using a J2EE webserver).
Good printing standards (page skips, scaling etc) in SVG are still
You can take a look in our software to see how we print SVG. I have
converted our SVG to support Firefox 1.5 with native SVG (without use
of the Adobe plug-in)
