That's OK. If it works - fine !

What is the format of the printfile ?

Or rather: how can one influence/define the format ?

Very good ! What you describe here is what we plan to do
with the RandomForm feature described here:

So this shows that forms *can* be done this way (and even
certified) even if it's not the technically most satisfying
approach :-)

Exactly. We already have tables for that. The encoding is
always going to be UTF8 as far as possible.

The "hard part" is to come up with a way of creating an
on-screen mask to let the user fill in the form. A useful
first step might be to simply use OpenOffice with a template
and a background image.
