[ANN] Barcode generator in XSL
Dear all, as a byproduct of our main activity, we have got an XSL stylesheet that draws barcodes from digit sequences. We hope a thing like this may be useful for people wishing to add barcode labelling to their XSL-based publishing solutions; it is also a funny example of XSLT programming per se. Barcodes implemented are the most popular ones that you can see on items in stores and groceries - UPC/EAN, to be precise; other systems can be easily added. The output is an XSL FO table that can be rendered to PDF. As most of the barcode-drawing logic is independent of the output graphical format, modifying the stylesheet to produce SVG or something similar should be a relatively simple task. The stylesheet and examples are freely available from http://www.renderx.com/Demos/barcode/; please come and see. You can also insert your own barcodes into the test and see if it produces a correct pattern. Don't forget to send me a bug report if it doesn't ;-).
