Rather than Batik and Adobe doing some wierd thing to make this
two-year-old software thinking its screen-scraping adumb html file,
perhaps it would be more efficient to make a revised version of this
software that uses the W3C XML DOM interface, already provided by both
Adobe and Batik and the recommended way by the WAI to acess structured
content.
