That mean exactly?

I looked at a few PDF docs I have on my local system, they look very
"binary"...  Of course, this is the after-transformation source, I
don't have any idea what it looked like before it was transformed.
Sorry, I'm not implying that I have generated these PDF docs via
xsl:fo, these are just PDF docs that I have from *where ever* on my
system.

I guess it is time to give it a try... but still not sure how to get
started.  Let me ask these questions:

1) can I get started without the fo engine?
2) will the xsl:fo namespace work without the engine (local) - so, the
namespace is valid and the transformations take place accordingly
3) does someone have a simple "hello world" -- or, depending on your
up bringing -- a "foo bar" sample?
