Hi All,

I've just started looking into using FOP for generating PDFs from classes in my java code.
I first had a go with the Apache's FOP engine. The problem I had with this one is that the Float attribute is not yet implemented in this engine.

What im trying to do is to "float" an image on the left hand side and have some text/image aligned next to it (Im trying to do things you normally do when using float).

My questions is:
* Are there any other way to achieve what float does, providing you are using the Apache Fop Engine.

Next task for me is to generate a table of content. Still haven't looked into that and I don't know to what extent Apache supporting this.

Ps. I know that RendeX has got a really nice FOP Engine, which implements all of the attributes(i think) from the XSL1.0 spec. However, this product doesn't come too cheap.

Thanks for any suggestions,
