Here's a 2nd "+1" for funding Jeremias. I've personally found Jeremias'
contributions and "help" to be most prompt and accurate. It would be
great to have him earn a little extra ca$h so he can continue his
generous contributions...

In addition to RenderX, which appears to be making great strides for
XSL-FO, I might also suggest looking in to Eliot Kimber & G. Ken
Holman's project to enhance XSL-FO, appropriately named "exslfo":


Finally, you might be able to get Acrobat to work through java and/or
the command-line to post-process PDF files for the functionality you're
looking for. Also, I haven't had the opportunity to check out Acrobat 6
(it appears to have been announced today), but there may be other
features there...

Good luck!
