RE: Quality between XSL:FO PDF and InDesign PDF
It's a solution for this, you can use scripting (visual Basic or apple script). You can define your own xml-format, apply an XSLT transformation and build a new or change an existing InDesign file while walking through the resulting DOM-Object. It's not an easy solution. It might be worth the efforts.

The biggest challenge is when changes are made to structure of imported XML (head1 changes to head 2 or head 2 changes to head3 and so on) when designer/compositor rarely understand XML and does the correction in it. Most of the time they are least interested in structure and more concern about the view leading to rework in correcting exported xml back to normal shape. We are encouraging our designers with basic XML training to understand the XML in InDesign but if they try to work in that direction they loose creativity and productivity. we are working on the scope of how to handle the situation but the challenges are big. Dorothy says: If you would like to see a tiny sample of XML and non-XML content in full color combined in InDesign, drop me a line and I will send you a two-page spread in InDesign CS3 (Win) and the output PDF Would appreciate to look into that. May be we can discuss this one to one without disturbing the spirit of the forum :-) Best, PC
