 * Primary class that activates the FOP process for embedded usage.
 * <P>
 * JAXP is the standard method of embedding FOP in Java programs.
 * Please check our
 * <a href="http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/trunk/embedding.html">embedding page</a>
 * for samples (these are also available within the distribution in
 * FOP_DIR\examples\embedding)
 * <P>
 * Methods within FOUserAgent are available to customize portions of the
 * process.  For example, a specific Renderer object can be specified,
 * also ElementMappings which determine elements in the FO that can be
 * processed) can be added.
 * <P>
 * At the moment, it is recommended not to reuse an instance of this
 * class for more than one rendering run.

     * Note this object implements the ContentHandler interface.
     * For processing with a Transformer object, this DefaultHandler object
     * can be used in the SAXResult constructor.
     * Alternatively, for processing with a SAXParser, this object can be
     * used as the DefaultHandler argument to its parse() methods.

     * finished. Note that the results are only available for output formats
     * which make use of FOP's layout engine (PDF, PS, etc.).
