a web preview of the coming (soon!) new major release of RenderX XSL FO Formatting Engine, XEP (http://www.renderx.com/FO2PDF.html) is available


The web page both contains a set of nice FO examples and lets visitors try and
format their own .FO files. 

The new features implemented and illustrated include:

- full implementation of fo:block-container, including 
  - reference-orientation and 
  - writing-mode
- side floats (float="left|right|start|end|inside|outside"); testris.fo is a really cool example;
- span="all" along with a useful extension rx:flow-section
- support for right-to-left writing mode and bidirectionality
- page-position="last"
- font-stretch
- automatic indices (an extension, a very useful one, asked for by many users)

Visit "Read Me" and  "New Features" list for more information.

All examples are rendered live; user samples are rendered too :-).

PS: It is running on a relatively slow machine with limited memory. I hope
it will bear the load since memory and performance improvements are also quite
significant. Well, I hope.
