I think you are using the colors black and white a bit careless here. In our environment we author in XML following some appropriate schema, say DocBook. Then we generate HTML+CSS, XSL-FO and occasionally SVG+CSS. So from my standpoint HTML and XSL-FO are used in the same manner only that it's a lot more tiring to manage font-sizes, colors, margins etc in the XSL-FO case. I'm not saying that XSL-FO is a feasible source document format but that's more an effect of history and evolution than anything else. Think of RTF ... I'm just saying that in many situations (like mine) HTML and XSL-FO are the same kind of citizens and both could play well and consistently with CSS. Cheers, David
