It's not that good actually :) but I wanted to post it here as soon as possible because I thought I could have helped someone. Seeing no response I was afraid Listar did something bad to the attachment...

They'll be on the library and on my reb site soon (I'll put it back up today). You can put it to your rebsite too if you want and feel it useful.

Images should be easy too; vector graphics would require thinking about designing a good dialect (any idea? how would you like it to be?). I'd like help on the font issue, which could require some time (reading TrueType or Type1 fonts, writing a SIZE-TEXT-alike function, etc.).

would be interested in size-text-alike for wrapping. but beeing poor in recherche to time. likely there is a special file for the font-metrics to be parsed by other programms? if you have some info straight to the point, i would like to help coding. -Volker
