Other discussions on this list have talked about FOP, but I haven't
seen any conclusions yet.
A quick update on this.
Tommy Reynolds patched xmlto to use FOP as a target. Mark Johnson is
using this along with the package from jpackage.org
in some tests over
the next few weeks. Hopefully this will give us a clearer picture of
where FOP falls short.
Just pointing out that FOP is not the only other usable XSL-FO
processor out there.
Thanks, and definitely everyone keep your eyes open for other possible
solutions. No matter what, we need a fully functional open source XSL-
FO processor solution ...
