xsl fo microsoft
Thanks for posting this hilarious bit of disinformation - hilarious except
for the worrying indication that you seem to take it seriously.

Microsoft don't have an XSL-FO product. Therefore, they will rubbish the
XSL-FO standard. You don't really read MSDN for independent objective
advice, do you?

XSL-FO has been a standard fully accepted by the World Wide Web consortium
since 15 Oct 2001.

# Below is an excerpt of an explanation for XSLT, took out from
# http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-
# us/xmlsdk/htm/xslt_starter_54dw.asp:
# "XSL is now generally referred to as XSL Formatting Objects (XSL-FO), to
# distinguish it from XSLT. The future of XSL-FO as a standard is uncertain,
# because much of its functionality overlaps with that provided by cascading
# style sheets (CSS) and the HTML tag set. If cross-vendor compatibility is
# important, you might want to avoid XSL-FO until it becomes a standard
# fully
# accepted by the Worldwide Web Consortium."
# Can I consider valid the declaration above? I really want to use XLS-FO as
# standard in the company I work for, as base document format for report
# generation, but this declaration could make me hesitate to. I would
# appreciate any thoughts.
# Thank you.
