For visual design of XSL:FO, see the XML Report Publishing pages — they will take you through the features and examples showing how to create XSL:FO without actually writing XSL:FO.
For those of you who want to get down and dirty with the XSL:FO itself, Stylus Studio® includes an XSL:FO editor (illustrated below) that is loaded with numerous XSL:FO development features that make it ideal for developing XML-based publishing applications. (When you click on the image below, the video tutorial will start after a brief delay.)
Intelligent XSL:FO Editing
Stylus Studio's XSL:FO editor includes full support for intelligent XSL:FO editing (illustrated below), including syntax coloring and code sensing for standard XSL:FO tags, such as fo:float, fo:footnote, and so on, in addition to HTML and XSLT tag sets.
Single-Click XSL:FO Transformation
Executing a XSL:FO stylesheet transformation is easy: Just associate an XML data file with an XSL:FO stylesheet and click the Preview icon on the XSL:FO toolbar. The resulting output document is displayed in the Preview window, and status messages from the XSL:FO processor (OK and Error, for example) are reported to an output console.
Support for Post-Processing of XML using Apache FOP
Stylus Studio allows you to specify XSL:FO post processing options on XSLT transformations using Apache FOP. This is useful in multi-stage XML transformation scenarios as when you first need to extract data from a relational database into XML, or invoke a live Web service method before rendering it to say, a PDF or PostScript file, for example.
Integrated PDF Preview Window for XML to PDF transformations
Stylus Studio's Integrated PDF Preview window alows you to visually inspect the resulting ouput of an XML to PDF XSL:FO transfomation in an integrated PDF preview windows, further helping you get the transformations to appear exactly as you want them to appear.
Stylus Studio's XSL:FO Editor is a powerful XSL:FO development tool, ideal for developing advanced, XML-based multi-channel publishing and information management systems.
