RE: [XSL-FO] The print industry, clueless?
Certainly once you have generated the PDF file, a lot of film/print houses
now set up to deal with PDF production. You could produce your data to
multiple PDFs if that is what you are trying to do?
Getting a print house to generate PDFs from your data, now that is an
interesting application, that considering the PDF usage making them
at the print house would appeal.
An extension to this might be merging different pics into each brochure
as further customisation for your list?

Subject: [XSL-FO] The print industry, clueless?
New to the group and new to xsl-fo. I'm working on a project to print
individualized brochures to customers. The info comes out of a standard
sql database. I've been having a hard time finding a local print house
that can accept the customer data as an xml file (They all want either
excel or cvs). They all think of it as a simple mail merge, when the
brochure are a lot more complex than that. So I was thinking... I have
all the data, besides that fact that I would need help with the artistic
design of the brochure, I could generate the pdf myself using
fop/cocoon. Are there print houses out there that have a clue about xml
or xsl-fo ?
