An introduction to XSL-FO,
an intro to last Octobers W3C recommendation,

"It is a stable document and may be used as reference material or cited as 
a normative reference from another document. W3C's role in making the 
Recommendation is to draw attention to the specification and to promote its 
widespread deployment. This enhances the functionality and interoperability 
of the Web."

In an attempt to widen understanding of that recommendation, I've written 
what was
intended to be a print book.

It is now available at


A couple of hundred pages, its not a doorstop and hopefully complements
the present recommendation.

I am seeking feedback, constructive criticism will be responded to.

I recognise it is not complete in terms of coverage.
I have written about what I can see working.

Mainly based on what is implemented in XEP and Antenna House,
it will be extended as more of the standard is implemented.
My thanks to Nikolai Grigoriev, Karen Lease  and Arved Sandstrom for
their contribution

Read and enjoy.
