I've posted the first release of my XSL:FO transformation for
DocUtils XML -> Apache FOP -> PDF.
This is a work-in-progress. A goodly number of DocUtils tags are not
yet supported, as I haven't needed them yet. Nonetheless, it is
capable of producing good PDF output on the whole! There are several
neat XSL tricks used to automate the document-building process,
especially as regards optional front-matter.
Most of my time is being devoted to actual writing, as most of my
XSL:FO requirements are now met by the transformations. As my
manuals become more complex, I'll continue to improve the templates.
I am especially interested in receiving feedback from those people
who's needs are not well-served by these templates. I'd like to
generalize their applicability as much as possible through the use of
If you use these transformations, please send your changes, ideas,
and improvements to me.
NB: the website will, some time in the distant future, have a
modularised tutorial with far better explanation of why I've done
what I've done. I simply don't have adequate time right now to
dedicate to it.
