Subject: RE: [XSL-FO] EPS graphics and FO processors> Is anyone aware of a FO renderer (to PDF) which supports print-quality graphics such as EPS?
Antenna House Formatter supports, if I remember correctly, several vector formats including eps and wmf, it is .com so you're limited to microsoft. FOP supports svg via batik, it's java, the svg output from illustrator 9 needs some preprocessing to work in FOP, I've found.

actually I haven't tried gradients inside FOP yet, but I have seen examples of gradient use in batik that worked fine so it shouldn't be a problem . remember that if you use svg inside an fo for FOP use fo:instream-foreign-object

most modern TeX's come with a utility called epstopdf which
makes a nice encapsulated PDF file from an EPS file.
