weel after two days sitting on page, and a lot of tests, I decided
that this idea is'nt so good, as I thought :( if we choose PHP, then
we will have more programing, than rewriting. As we did in the past: switch=
from HTML to XML, then from perl to xml and then again generating HTML...
and PDF library which now runs with PHP is more programming than converting=
of course - we can generate PDF, we can convert a lot of docs to PHP, maybe=
 in the=20
future we will win, but today it is not for us - we can't do this :(

sad but true.

I was thinking that we can combine PHP and XML, but this is not the way...

So, the migration to PHP will die ;)
