HI

Is there an easy way of converting an XML file into a PDF file (Given that
the right stylesheet is there)

Hi Niels,

in principle this is possible but not in a single step, as far as I
have understood it.
First you have to embed the information from your XML file in an
XML:fo file. FO stands for formatting objects and defines a possible
output path for informations stored in XML files. You then have to
transform the resulting FO-file into PDF via an XSL-fo processor such
as the FOP processor from the apache project
(http://xml.apache.org/#fop).
However, I have no idea how the transformation xml->xml:fo->pdf works
in detail, but there should be plenty of syntax and other information
around in the inet.
Godd luck
Piet
