I am willing to give this a try if you can help point me in the right
direction.  I can compile Batik from source and have available VS2005.  I
will look into creating an ActiveX plugin but if you have any specific
references for me to check let me know.  We desperately need a new plug-in
and Batik would be a perfect solution.
