            Yes. I realized later that XSL-FO was not the only 
    solution to get formatted output as XSL-FO is to XML what 
    CSS2 is to HTML. i.e add formatting markup to XML content. 

I don't agree with that statement either.
XSL-FO is an XML vocabulary for the specification of content layout.
XSL-FO is normally the output vocabulary of a dedicated XSLT stylesheet.
CSS applies style directly to XML or HTML.

        allows rendering a input xml document to be rendered in
        multiple output media like print, browser, eBook etc.,
    My apologies here. What I meant by eBook was formatting an 
    XML document into an eBook suitable for rendering on a 
    palmtop or a eBookReader. Again, this may not exist as of 
    now but should be possible using XSL-FO.

I don't speak for any vendors, but again I'd think this unlikely,
perhaps XSLT from a common XML to a non binary ebook format?
