I would say, 'take your time!" While we'd love to have those files, I can understand your wanting to clean them up a bit before you submit them to something 'permanent'!

If you get stuck, you could ask for a little help on the Mulberry xsl-list (which you can find on the FOP Resources page[1]... plug! plug!)

<x-tad-bigger>One example is the graphs in those PDF’s, I generate those graphs with an intermediate tool that I wrote which generates SVG graphs</x-tad-bigger><x-tad-bigger> </x-tad-bigger><x-tad-bigger>from data and layout input in XML format.

If the files are in SVG format (and referenced locally), you could just ZIP up all of the files that are required, and post the ZIP archive... That may make the most sense, as the SVG files will be easy to look at and take apart in their own right.

<x-tad-bigger>XSLT itself is unfortunately not enough to generate these graphs.</x-tad-bigger>

Like I said, take your time, and if you want some help, either ask here or on the Mulberry XSL-List...
