Hi Jirka,

For one, I like it: For a BP document it may be handy to have PDF output available; for example to copy locally.
If I recall well, alternate formats are sometimes provided from links in the HTML document, I would see as useful to have that for
our BP. Opinions anyone?

Hi folks,

you can look at the first preview of PDF version of BP document:


Please not that there are things that have to be fixed, including:
- XEP bookmarks
- make page citatations links
- fix footnotes numbering
- fix stacking of lines with footnote marks
- fix presentation of some relative links in footnote

But I would like to know if you like idea of having printer friendly rendering before I spent more time on preparing it.

Please note that my goal was to produce document that will be usable after printing:
- page numbers and references to them were added in ToC and to some links
- some links were removed (links to examples source code)
- More resources were removed because they are repeating after each BP and they are just consuming dead trees after printing

Document is produced using XSL-FO. XSL-FO is generated from HTML rendering of BP document, not directly from XMLSpec sources. I
commited stylesheets into CVS so if you are curious you can look inside them.

Comments welcomed.
