Another proposal for XSL formatting objects can be found at http:// at
www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-XSL-and-CSS

(This proposal suggests the use of CSS to construct flow objects in the
result tree.)

This brings up the question of whether several formatting namespaces are
allowed in the same document, and if so how is the result tree declared.

For just one namespace i.e. the fo: namespace the result tree is declared
thus:

<xsl:stylesheet
         xmlns:xsl="http//www.w3.org/TR/WD-xsl"
         xmlns:fo="http//www.w3.org/TR/WD-xsl/FO"
         result-ns="fo">

Question 1. Are multiple formatting namespaces allowed?

Question 2. If so is this how they would be represented?

<xsl:stylesheet
         xmlns:xsl="http//www.w3.org/TR/WD-xsl"
         xmlns:fo="http//www.w3.org/TR/WD-xsl/FO"
         xmlns:css="http://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-XSL-and-CSS"
         result-ns="fo"
        result-ns="css">

It strikes me that the result-ns could be modified to aloow for multiple
name spaces.
