FYI, the Print and Page Layout Community Group @ W3C [1], as part of a
focus on getting more feedback in XSL-FO processing, has developed
extension functions for Xalan, Saxon 9.5, and the DotNet XSLT processors
for running FOP and getting back an area tree [3].

The wiki page at
shows some examples of why you'd use such an extension.

The extension functions are available under the open source W3C license
(as you might expect).

The code is available from the CG's Hg repository [2], and a (fairly)
up-to-date copy of the source can be downloaded from the wiki page.

Any comments on or improvements to the code would be welcome.  E.g., the
extension function for running Antenna House on DotNet has an optional
parameter for a config file, but we don't have that for FOP with any of
the XSLT processors.

interest to people here.
