RE: [XSL-FO] Books on XSL-FO
- There are at least two books dedicated to XSLFO:
- Practical Formatting Using XSLFO by G. Ken Holman, available from
- An introduction to XSL Formatting Objects by Dave Pawson, available
online at http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/sect3/bk/index.html
Those are both only available electronically at this point, but I
believe both will inevitably be printed. Both look great to me, I think
any more FO books should complement these.
Also, John Simpson's "Just XSL" has three chapters on XSLFO.
The problem with FO is the availability of tools - RenderX and Antenna
House are expensive, while FOP is perpetually alpha. It would be nice
if some major software companies supported FO.

Subject: [XSL-FO] Books on XSL-FO
There are a lot of books on XSLT -- well, "a lot" being "at least
six" -- and most of them have a chapter or so on XSL-FO. Are there
any books which cover formatting objects in detail?
If not, what sort of things do you think should be in such a book?
