Developing Stylesheets That Generate FO
To develop a stylesheet that generates FO:
1. Define the scenario in which you want to apply the stylesheet that generates FO. See Creating a Scenario.
2. In the Scenario Properties dialog box, in the Post-process tab, do one of the following:

3. In the XSLT editor, define a stylesheet that generates FO. As soon as you type
4. Apply the stylesheet to an XML document.
After Stylus Studio transforms the XML document to generate a result XML document that contains formatting objects, Stylus Studio automatically runs the FOP you specified on the result document. Stylus Studio then displays the postprocess result in the XSLT Preview window.
