Response to: FOP

I haven't used iText (I'm a FOP fan myself), but I'm familiar with some of the pros and cons of coordinate based tools like iText - the pro is that it is nice when you have to write to a pre-defined pdf, but the disadvantage is if the format changes, it throws off all your coordinates. This isn't an issue with FOP, however while you can build pretty much anything with FOP (images, etc) and the formattingis very powerful, it definitely requires some practice.
