EXSLFO Project Accepting Re-Usable FO Fragments
- It has been suggested that the EXSLFO project (exslfo.sourceforge.net)
would be an appropriate place to collect fragments of FO markup that can
be re-used or used as templates for solving common problems. This would
be an adjunct to the general how-to information already managed in the
XSL FAQ maintained by Dave Pawson.
At the moment I don't have any infrastructure to automate submissions,
so in the short term you can just send me stuff and I'll put it on the
Web site. I've gotten permission to re-use the EXSLT infrastructure for
submissions but I haven't yet had time to do anything with it (and
probably won't until after XML 2002). Of course if anyone would like to
volunteer to take on this task, I would be tremendously grateful....
Examples of FO fragments that might be useful include:
- Common page master declarations
- Common static content patterns
- Markup for tables of contents, indexes, etc.
- Markup for lists
- Utility constructs
- Clever uses of FO functions
