Hi everyone,

I have a unique problem and I have searched the forum for a solution but
can't seem to see any. 

I need to write an XSL-FO file that can output the xml it is quering as it
is. so basically this xsl-fo file can be used to create a pdf file
displaying the xml file that it is transforming. 

for example;  if I had an xml file such as below;

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Class>
   <Order Name="TINAMIFORMES">
        <Family Name="TINAMIDAE">
            <Species Scientific_Name="Tinamus major">  Great
Tinamou.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Nothocercus">Highland
Tinamou.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Crypturellus soui">Little
Tinamou.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Crypturellus cinnamomeus">Thicket
Tinamou.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Crypturellus boucardi">Slaty-breasted
Tinamou.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Crypturellus kerriae">Choco
Tinamou.</Species>
        </Family>
    </Order>
    <Order Name="GAVIIFORMES">
        <Family Name="GAVIIDAE">
            <Species Scientific_Name="Gavia stellata">Red-throated
Loon.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Gavia arctica">Arctic Loon.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Gavia pacifica">Pacific
Loon.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Gavia immer">Common Loon.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Gavia adamsii">Yellow-billed
Loon.</Species>
        </Family>
    </Order>
</Class>


i can use this XSL-FO file, to generate a pdf which will contain the above
xml out. so the pdf will contain the following;

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Class>
   <Order Name="TINAMIFORMES">
        <Family Name="TINAMIDAE">
            <Species Scientific_Name="Tinamus major">  Great
Tinamou.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Nothocercus">Highland
Tinamou.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Crypturellus soui">Little
Tinamou.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Crypturellus cinnamomeus">Thicket
Tinamou.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Crypturellus boucardi">Slaty-breasted
Tinamou.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Crypturellus kerriae">Choco
Tinamou.</Species>
        </Family>
    </Order>
    <Order Name="GAVIIFORMES">
        <Family Name="GAVIIDAE">
            <Species Scientific_Name="Gavia stellata">Red-throated
Loon.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Gavia arctica">Arctic Loon.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Gavia pacifica">Pacific
Loon.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Gavia immer">Common Loon.</Species>
            <Species Scientific_Name="Gavia adamsii">Yellow-billed
Loon.</Species>
        </Family>
    </Order>
</Class>


which is exactly the same xml content.

I would really appreciate any help.
