RE: Printing XML reports
Robert, I am also interested in doing this. There are 2 other possible solutions as I see it: 1. Use Adobe API to generate PDF (may have nothing to do with XSL) 2. Use an XSL stylesheet to create a FDF (Forms Definition File) Adobe reader can overlay the PDF and FDF yielding your form. Has anybody else attempted #2? >I need to convert some XML documents into PDF. >The documents contain financial reports. >Currently, the XML docs are converted into HTML tables >or display on browsers.
