OK, I am now figuring out what it takes to implement a new flow object,
but I'm not making too much headway.  Where is a good place in the
source code to start looking?  Basically I'm trying to understand the
path from sosofo to RTF output.  I'm guessing that each SGML node raises
some event in the FOTBuilder, and each individual FOTBuilder (RTF, MIF,
etc) implements the events according to the DSSSL sosofo.  What I can't
quite make out yet is just exactly how this happens... Any help or
guidance would be very helpful!!
