Subject [jira] Closed: (FOR-1013) absolute URLs in PDF
Date Fri, 22 Jun 2007 04:32:26 GMT


David Crossley closed FOR-1013.

       Resolution: Fixed
    Fix Version/s: 0.9-dev
         Assignee:     (was: David Crossley)

The DTDs should be working now.

I found that nothing needed to be added to the skinconf pipeline transformations (in particular
main/webapp/skins/common/skinconf.xsl) which seem to be only needed if default=true is required
or other default settings.
