Which engine?  This works with both Antenna House and XEP when going to PDF.

Which application within Crane?  This shows up in the marginalia of our 
invoices.  The early sign-up to our October XSL courses in the US triggered 
the need to issue a number of invoices ... I converted our OpenOffice 
spreadsheet-based invoice into an 
XML/RELAX-NG/SVG/XSLT/XSL-FO/Python/Jython/iText application since the 
spreadsheet was prone to human error (read "my typing!").   I have more 
confidence in my programming than in my typing.  Now all I do is edit a 
short XML instance and can issue a password-protected PDF invoice in the 
same layout as I did when using OpenOffice and Acrobat Exchange by hand.

I hope I've understood your question one way or the other.
