Developing Advanced Styles with XSL-FO


This two day course covers the Extensible Stylesheet Language Formatting Objects (XSL-FO), used for the paginated presentation of structured information (e.g. printing XML). The objectives of the course are to understand the role and utility of the Recommendation, to overview basic constructs of the Recommendation, to design and develop XSL-FO scripts using XSLT and XPath (both of which are assumed to already be known by the attendee), and to efficiently navigate the available documentation and resources.


The primary audience for this course is developers, architects or system analysts tasked with producing professional paginated output from XML documents. Prior knowledge of XML concepts such as elements, attributes and well-formedness and validation is a prerequisite for this class..
