This is really just a brief question to find out who is using what and why....what they like about their processor and what shortcomings are unfortunate.... We are certainly not going to buy (or not buy) anything based strictly on an opinion expressed here, but might take a closer look at a processor that is clearly preferred above others. We are currently using RenderX and except for it not supporting decimal-alignment (drat!) or more of the spec, I don't have any other reservations about using it. Our project lead just wants to make sure we aren't leaving a better tool on the table. So, my revised requirements are below.... >1. High performance, large file size processing. Process xml files 8 to 10 mb, with around 180,000 lines of xml. Print 8000 - 32000 pages per hour with up to 6 insert trays. >2. Complex layouts with intensive graphics (inserted jpgs and generated svg code) Not plain Jane basic, but probably not too complicated, variable columns per section, variable table span, generated svg graphics (pie charts, line chart, bar charts, 3of9 barcodes), embedded jpgs with variable scaling. These are client financial statements and communications, not flashy marketing posters or brochures. >4. Commercial print quality required - 600dpi laser and 600 x 1200 Postscript - full color. > For example, do you need a tool that supports Aural Stylesheets? The next phase of the project is to create Aural stylesheets for our IVR system, using the same content created for print.
