I have no idea either, I think it should just be
foml, cause these aren't style sheets of any sort. At least I have yet to apply
them to another document.

Subject: [XSL-FO] Why Formatting
I apologise if the
answer to that question is obvious to everybody but me,
but on several
occasions I have wondered why Formatting "Objects" rather
example, "Formatting Elements" or even "Formatting Nodes".
that matter, why "XSL-FO" why not just "XSL-F" a la XSLT?
are stupid questions to which the answer is "Just because". :)
Considering that,at some point in late 1997 (I think), we were within
or two of being devotees of "MAGMA" rather than "XML" (if remember
maybe XSL-FO "just is".
But if anyone does know why the
name XSL-FO was chosen I would be interested
to be educated.
