I wish we would target those teams.  If you go out on the web you can find
thousands of government and business documents (not sure about martini
mixers) that are produced with either CSS or XSL-FO.  It is a extremely
large space.  The majority of the documents are distributed as PDFs and are
still structured around pages.  There is a lot of interest in ePubs and a
ever increasing requirement for accessibility.  

 

Antenna House has done quite a bit comparing XSL-FO to CSS.  This might help

Here is just a small sampling of some of the documents you can find on the

On the Monday DPUB call, one of the things that came up was doing a formal
gap analysis for CSS vs XSL-FO.

 

That would be fun :)
