Subject Re: Is Cocoon the right tool?
Date Thu, 05 Mar 2009 14:40:21 GMT
Hello,
Well Birt use css-styles under the hood, you can even prepare them before hand.
You can even embed html, background images are supported, ...
A good exemple :
http://www.richclient2.eu/2006_11_17/eclipse-birt-a-cases-study/
So what would be thoses limitations exactly?
I would more expect a performence issue, because the rendering time is
definitly longer.
Then the scale of CV and their design evolution period would be the
crieria too choose a solution.

Best regards,
Philippe
