Subject:Word > XML; applying XSLT for CMS; and another for PDF Author:d p Date:17 Apr 2005 09:13 PM
apologies for the cross-post but think it would be better in this area
I'm working on an XML conversion project using MS-Word 2003 as the authoring envrionment along with Stylus Studio for my XML development where I have writtend an XSD (schema) to validate the output of the MS-Word file, and an XSLT for the transformation of this clean content into that which is suitable for integration with our CMS.
I'm now looking to develop an XSLT (using XSL:FO commands) to produce a printable PDF. This cannot be done from MS-Word as it has a number of form fields in it, and the layout is ugly as its only ever been intended for use as an authoring environment only. Whilst Stylus Studio I believe is the best editor around, it does lack a visual environment for generating XSL:FO and my skills/experience in this area is very basic to date.
Getting to the point, has anyone else done this sort of thing and able to direct me to an XSL:FO sample of their work, or even better a tool/utility that can add the smarts of FO to my existing XSLT, or a toll/utility that has a WYSIWYG environment for making XSL:FO files?
