If performance is everything, you might look into some of the proprietary
PDF engines like faceless.org. But either way I believe you're still going
to have to convert your raw xml into something marked up for display, then
feed it to the PDF generator. 
 
Does anyone have any experieince with faceless compared to FOP
performance-wise?

How to decrease the responding time of converting from XML to PDF ?
Currently it took me about 2 Mins to generate my 56 page PDF from XML files.
Is that possible to convert from XML to PDF without the intermediate stage
of FO format ? 


Thanks, 
Jie

There are no chapter_title or sub formatting objects in xsl-fo, you have to 
transform it in xslt to fo objects, like <fo:inline> rather than just
copying 
them to the fo.
