This revised Second Edition again contains all formatting objects of the W3C XSLFO 1.0 Recommendation with additional text, examples, twice as many diagrams, and new content based on feedback and requests for additions from existing customers. It has been four months since the last edition.

The free download preview excerpt (in both A4 and US-letter page sizes) has also been updated to reflect the content of the new edition. If you have downloaded the earlier free preview excerpt, you may wish to pick up a new copy.

As with our other editions of our electronically distributed training material, the purchase of any edition of any electronic publication entitles the customer to all future editions of the same material at no charge. Future editions will continue to track changes in the Recommendations, therefore, your one purchase (there are no continual fees) will always be up-to-date with these W3C technologies. Also, you can influence how the material evolves by asking us to consider changes you'd like to see.

Information can be obtained from the link below to the "Book Sales" section on the Crane web site (also the location of the free download preview excerpt).

We hope you find this useful and we look forward to your feedback.
