The AWTRenderer for FOP uses JavaAWT as the rendering medium, as opposed to 
PDF or any other "hard" output medium. The actual browser is not 
sophisticated (at this stage of the game it runs once for each file), but 
you can page back and forth, zoom in and out, and print.

The way things are set up right now, the AWTCommandLine class expects FO as 
the input. It wouldn't take much to integrate XalanCommandLine (soon just 
XSLTCommandLine once we get TRAX supported) and the AWTRenderer backend.

I suppose the main reason nobody has polished up this functionality is 
because it is mostly a previewer, and FOP is not production yet. But the 
thing works quite well.
