I see nothing in the sample table you mailed that could not be supported in
XSL. However, if you are using FOP, you should check further with the
authors/apache to see if any specific features you require are not
currently supported by FOP.

Unfortunatly, I do not have time to provide tutorials on how to use XSLT &
XSL-FOs. There are a number of books available, but your best option may be
to post your question on the xsl-list@mulberrytech.com. This is a public
forum discussing the usage of XSL & XSLT. The participants are quite
helpful in providing real-world answers to questions such as yours.

In order to limit spam, it is necessary to register to post questions to
this forum. Follow the instructions on www.mulberrytech.com for signing up
on the xsl-list.
