True, but I fail to see the advantage of this approach. I've read the 
info and the comments and the only thing I got out of it was: a lot of 
hassle for the same result. If you could explain please do.

My current (working) setup looks like this:

- flowscript function calls cform for entering parameters.
- parameters are stored in a javascript bean.
- bean is passed onto a jx-template file:

<jx:template>
   <html>
     <body>
       <img src="my-svg-pipeline?param1=${bean.x}&amp;param2=${bean.y}"/>
     </body>
   </html>
</jx:template>

my-svg-pipeline:

- generate svg with my dedicated svggenerator using parameters
- serialize svg2jpg

this works, at least in firefox on mac. I'll be testing it in other 
browsers asap. If this works well, I'm thinking of expanding it to show 
SVG rather than a jpg depending on the browser or a user preference.

If you have a better/more elegant idea, please let me know.

Bye, Helma
