There may be, but then you would lose the semantics.  See
http://www.myopera.com/people/howcome/1999/foch.html

It would be better to present XML and XSLT to the browser, to facilitate
richer searchability and a more direct mapping between content and
presentation.

Presumably that XSLFO came from some XML via XSLT?

Wouldn't it be best to stylize the same XML directly into HTML via a
distinct XSLT stylesheet, i.e.:
XML->XSLT1->XSLFO
XML->XSLT2->XHTML
?

This preserves the semantics, at least for browsers capable of XML/XSLT.  It
also lets you tailor the output for HTML browser rendition (i.e. web) via
one stylesheet and for FO rendition (i.e. print) via another.

Subject: generate html from fo?


Hi.

Sorry if I am clueless here.  I am trying!

I am using FOP to generate pdf files from a servlet.

Is there a way that I can generate html from this same fo file?  I would
think this is possible.  Any thoughts?

Thank you,
Phillip
