http://www.w3.org/ -- 13 September 2006 -- W3C will hold a Workshop  
to gather inspiration, needs and techniques for a future version of  
XSL-FO, the formatting specification of the Extensible Stylesheet  
Language (XSL). The Workshop takes place on 18 October 2006, and is  
hosted by Heidelberger Druckmaschinen AG at their Print Media Academy  
in Heidelberg, Germany.

The XSL specification is in two parts: a language for transforming  
XML documents (XSLT), and an XML vocabulary for specifying formatting  
semantics (XSL-FO). This Workshop is about the second of these two  
parts, the formatting language.

The World Wide Web Consortium's XSL Working Group has started work on  
version 2.0 of XSL-FO, and is looking for experts in the field to  
bring their knowledge, insight and experience, as well as for use  
cases and representatives of user communities.The W3C XSL Working  
Group expects that the enhancements for XSL-FO 2.0 will focus on  
layout-driven formatting, augmenting the content-driven layout  
facilities already defined.

The XSL Working Group expects to be working in conjunction with the  
Scalable Vector Graphics (SVG) Working Group to enhance the layout  
capabilities of XSL-FO.

The Workshop is colocated with the W3C Print Symposium 2006 on 17  
October, an event run by the W3C Germany and Austria Office.
