RenderX, Inc., (http://www.renderx.com) is pleased to inform you about a new
product's availability - Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) 1.5 is now released.

The Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) application dramatically simplifies visual design
of printable layouts that populate form-like documents with XML data. A PDF
file or a raster image, such as a scan of a preprinted form, can be used as
a layout's background. The resulting XSLT stylesheet that merges the layout
and the XML data to produce XSL FO can be used for creation of PDF or
PostScript print files using RenderX's XEP XSL FO formatter. The resulting
printable output may contain the imported background, or the background may
be omitted for print on preprinted forms. The separation of the document
into the static content and variable data delivers a significant boost in
rendering productivity compared to the traditional rendering approach.

The Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) application is a powerful tool that can be used
in all business applications where forms need to be filled in. Mass
generation of form-style documents, such as statements, bills, invoices,
standard forms, application forms, etc., or direct mail are examples of
ideal applications for Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) 1.5.

The main features of Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) are:
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
--------
* Easy-To-Use Layout Designer
Design your complex forms quickly and easily with the intuitive GUI. Just
drag and drop data fields directly onto the layout designer. A user-friendly
and intuitive Windows GUI was specifically designed for non-technical users.

* What You See Is What You Get (WYSIWYG)
At any moment, you can use the preview window to see the final formatted
document.

* No Knowledge of XSLT Stylesheets or Programming Is Required
The use of Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) does NOT require special training on XSLT
stylesheets, XSL-FO, or programming.
You can easily arrange static and dynamic elements in the layout pane,
according to the XML document structure, its fields and data.
Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) processes the designed layout and produces XSLT
stylesheet to work with RenderX's XEP XSL FO formatter.

* High-Speed Document Generation
The stylesheet generated by Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) for rendering your
designed document is specifically optimized for high-performance XSL FO
formatter. With this stylesheet, the RenderX XEP formatter provides
high-speed of the PDF (or PostScript) document generation.

* Single- and Multi-Page Forms Support
Single- as well as multipage forms can be filled with data.

* Different Types of Data Fields
Various types of data controls are available to be put onto the form layout:
dynamic text, check marks, images, barcodes, address labels, paragraph
blocks, and more.

* Conditional Rendering
Every data field has a special "visibility" property that can be set to
control rendering under certain conditions.

* XPath Validation
Almost all XPath expressions are created automatically when you drag and
drop an XML tree node onto the layout designer. For fine-tuning purpose,
however, you can manually customize data retrieval process by modifying
XPath expressions. The Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) application validates all
XPath expressions and informs you about any errors.

* Docking Windows
Visual-XSL (VisualXSL) features a docking window interface. You can dock and
undock the application's windows to create the optimal workspace
configuration.
