    can Saxon/xalan output FO format directly from XMLwith xsl


    Hi,

    Is anybody know whether Saxon or Xalan can output .fo format from xml and
    xsl (with no declare output method) directly.

    If can, what is the command line for saxon or xalan to make this work.

    Because i will use XEP to generate PDF from the .fo file.

    From what I think I understood from the
    FO Questions at

    fodtd.html (bookmarked 2001-07-06)
    http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect3/index.html

    this is a reference to "XSL FO"
    (XSL Formatting Objects), another XML "dialect",
    in this case, "a description language for
    high-quality visual presentation semantics",
    i.e. an XML alternative to PostScript and PDF
    used to prepare printed output.

    Sorry, that's all I know.
