I write to ask your feedback about a XML demo that we 
realized by EDW International for Rassegna Grafica  
(http://www.apenet.it/ita/rg/index.asp), italian 
magazine that talks about printing technologies for 
53 years.
A small demo to show the power of XML for the 
realization of pages HTML and PDF.

You can see the demo at the URL
(that soon it will be linked from the Rassegna 
Grafica's web site).

The demo, that generates a hypothetical business 
card, starts when you write in the fields of the form 
at the first page, here the English translation (the 
demo is in Italian):

Inserisci i tuoi dati per visualizzarli in PDF e per 
il web (Insert your data to visualize them in PDF and 
for the web)

Inserisci il tuo nome e cognome:
(Insert your name and surname)

Inserisci il tuo indirizzo email:
(Insert your e-mail)

Inserisci il tuo ruolo:
(Insert your responsability)

Inserisci la tua cittą:
(Insert your city)

So a page should have to appear a page that show the 
data that you have inserted and asks if you want 
visualize them in HTML or pdf, by a simple click. 
HTML and pdf are created in that moment through XSL 
and Xsl-fo.

We wanted to show that if you use XML in the writing 
it is easier to re-use the data that you receive for 
the printing in HTML and managing a personalized 
printing "hiding" to the author the complexity of the 
mechanism that is behind this result.

The demo is better explained by3 articles, the first 
one of them has already appeared on issue 1 of 
January (already in distribution) of Rassegna
Grafica: let me want if you like to read them.

I hope that this initiative diffuses necessary 
computer science culture in the world of the press in 
Italy and you reward the courage of Rassegna Grafica 
in the supporting of this kind of innovation.
