Subject Docbook and FOP
Date Tue, 10 Oct 2000 17:22:28 GMT
I'm writing my thesis in Docbook and I'd like to print it out using FOP.

I'm using Norman's XSLT stylesheets to convert Docbook into FO and they
stretch the XML/XSLT/XSLFO model to its limits.

So far I got it to work only with the simplest examples and I noted that
the most striking problem is the extensive use of the <fo:inline>
formatting object which is not recognized by FOP (because it's not

For more complex documents that use more or less all important DocBook
elements, here is the output

"xsl-region-after", why are we still supporting the old names? bug or

BTW, Norman, what did you use to render your FOs? It's evident that FOP
was not used for that.

Does anybody else uses Norman's stylesheets for Docbook with FOP? Am I
the only crazy guy? :)
