I am wondering if there is some sort of pre procesing build into any
of the XSL-fo compilers (fop, xep, ..)
which would return information about the formate back to the
processing system. Eg to find out where this "letter" would be placed
(what page, maybe even x/y coordinates of the page), so that I could
uses this in some king of VBscript to automate my formatting process?
