This uses Apache FOP as the PDF rendering engine.
Yes, with a few exceptions the FOP output is very nice. I agree they
must be using a proprietary JVM to compile FOP, although the article
mentions they did try gcj and had some performance concerns. I was
going to look into that.
However, it *does* come with a customized XSLT stylesheet that we
could use. The PDF stylesheet in "docs-common/xsl" has not been
altered since its import many, many moons ago.
I'll look at updating the PDF stylesheet, then.
Agreed. It is derived from Norm Walsh's XSL. It is rather customized,
but we could use that as a reference or starting point. The XSL as-is
is probably better for FOP than what we have right now. :)
