I am wondering if anyone can recommend a good book on xsl-fo?

It is awkward to recommend one's own book, so *I* won't say it is "good" (I am too biased to give an objective opinion), but you can judge for yourself because we have a free preview available on the web site:

  Practical Formatting Using XSL-FO
  (Extensible Stylesheet Language Formatting Objects)
  Second Edition - 2002-04-05 - ISBN 1-894049-09-8
  Copyright (c) 2002 Crane Softwrights Ltd.
  / 361 Pages / Subscription price includes free updates,
  /           / soft-copy of included examples, and an
  /           / accessible rendition and 10 PDF renditions.
  /           / Free 175-page download preview excerpt.

I'm hoping to publish the third edition later this week. Purchasing any one edition gives access to all future editions at no charge (we have produced 10 editions of our XSLT book). We also have site-staff-licenses and world-staff-licenses available for our titles.

Go to our home page noted below and click on the top link "Book sales" where you can download the preview in the paper size you need. Note that we also have renditions of our material formatted for those with sight difficulties in that it is geared for screen reader software.

I will make announcement when the next edition is available.

Have fun with XSL-FO! I've been very pleased with its power in presenting information in a paginated form.

............... Ken
