Hi

I'd like to print out the 1.1 spec.
But it it's very hard to navigate;
There are no page numbers, and the index looks like this:

Metadata, 1
'metadata' element, 1
MIME Type, 1

The XSL 1.0 spec for example is much better suited for printing; the TOC 
looks like this:

1.2. Benefits of XSL .........................6
1.2.1. Paging and Scrolling ................. 6
1.2.2. Selectors and Tree Construction ...... 7

and the property index:

Appendix E. Property Index
. "absolute-position" --  7.5.1 on page 175
. "active-state" --  7.22.1 on page 289
. "alignment-adjust" --  7.13.1 on page 233

They wrote it in the W3C spec XML lang:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<spec>
<header>
<title>Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL)</title>
<version>Version 1.0</version>
<w3c-designation>xsl-20011015</w3c-designation>
<w3c-doctype>W3C Recommendation</w3c-doctype>
<pubdate><day>15</day><month>October</month><year>2001</year></pubdate>

The PDF is generated by RenderX XEP, probably from FO (... generated 
from the source XML via XSLT).

Perhaps a similiar PDF version could be generated from (future) SVG specs?

Tobi
