Re: FO to PDF XSL tranformation

Xalan is implementation of XSLT. Output format is XML, HTML or TEXT. If PDF is TEXT file, I can imagine XSLT script which can transform FO to PDF. Am I right? Therefore I am looking for such fo2pdf.xslt script. What do you think? Is it reasonable? Then I can imagine DocBook to PDF

This is not possible. PDF can be a text format but is generally in binary. It would be impossible to process most of the required things using xslt eg. images, markers, links, pagenumbers, layout, property resolving, footnotes, floats. Whats left would be extremely complex. On 2002.03.19

Hello Matthias, I think it is a good idea to extend word with macros like this. The macro should be developed at least with word 97 for compatiblity and should be configureable that an other version or an other converter like html2fo runs to do the job. There should be an option for use

Hi Enrico, the problem with Word 97 is related to the fact that the produced HTML doesn't contain all the extra information needed for the pagination and flow control. So WH2FO will not be able to extract those information to generate the correct page-masters and page-sequences. I don't
