Here are several questions.

1. Did W3C determine to discontinue developing XSL-FO 2.0 for the feature?
2. What is the main cause that XSL-FO 2.0 (http://www.w3.org/TR/2012/WD-xslfo20-20120117/) has been failed?
3. I beleive that XSL-FO is most suitable techinology for formatting XML documents. Does CSS techinology become the complete alternative of the XSL-FO?

The answer is probably for people to invest in CSS, not XSL-FO, these
days.
I use XSL for transforming XML into a variety of other formats
(usually XML but sometimes plain text or CSV).
I am guessing you mean XSLT, not XSL-FO.

  Why do you say people should be investing in CSS, not XSL-FO? How is
this related to XSL?
XSL is in two parts, transformation and formatting.
XSLT is the transformation part.
XSL-FO is the formatting/styling part.

XSLT development is active and continuing.
XSL-FO development is less active.

Hope this helps,

Liam
