1. To convert an XML to PDF, you'll need a properly coded XSL document. (For instance, see if you can run the glossary example in ../examples/markers
command line = " fop -xsl glossary.xsl -xml glossary.xml -pdf glossary.pdf "
2. Display the results in a web page. Look at the instructions in http://xml.apache.org/fop/embedding.html
3. Actually pulling it off. You'll need to study some
XSL tutorials like the one at http://www.arbortext.com/xsl/ FO tutorial like the one at http://www.renderx.com/tutorial.html

I just successfully run the examples (simple.fo) provided in 'fop-0.20.3-bin.tar.gz' file under fop-0.20.3\docs\examples\fo subdirectory in the command prompt and I got a pdf file successfully . I still have the following question:
1. How can I view the source code for this example?
2. I also looked over all the rest of the folders included in 'fop-0.20.3' and there are a lot other folders like design, html-docs(some .html files in it), xml-docs(some xml files in it), etc. What are all those files used for?
3. Actually what I want to do is: convert a XML file to PDF file and display this PDF file on the web page. How to do this?
