I have the same problem migrating from fop 0.20 to 0.94 - a file generated
using fop 0.20 = 147K, whilst the same  file generated using fop 0.94 =
434K.  Also, I'm using jdk1.5
Because these pdf files are dowloaded from a web app, the increase in file
size will mean the powers that be deciding that we do not migrate to 0.94 at
Any other suggestions/observations since the last posts??
