Looking again at one of the docs we generate with fop, and while it has the PDF outline it doesn't have the title/author stuff set after all. Sorry to mislead you. Apparently fop doesn't support doing that directly, according to <http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/faq.html#pdf-doc-properties >. You either have to post-process your PDF file, or use a different processor. XEP has worked very well for me in the past, though produces larger files than fop. Cheers, Chris
