Apache was never mentioned in the thread by anyone but you. The FO style
sheets I directed Terry to will work with nearly any XSLT processor. I've used
them with MSXML, Saxon, Xalan and XSLTproc. There may be some limitations
running the FO through FOP.

I said in my original reply, stated the style sheets are developed with and
geared toward PTC Arbortext tools. They needs some tweaking for Antenna House
or RenderX and most certainly FOP.

I don't think these stylesheets are for Apache. If memory serves me correctly,
they won't work. I had to write my own set.

are in the url you provided. The Dtd had a couple of duplicate attribute
definitions so I eliminated them and the stylesheet set is missing an xsl:key
which I faked for now. So I have both validating in Oxygen 17.1. Now what I
need is a sample document to try out to run the transform in Oxygen and see
how the Apache FO will do to create a PDF. Is there a sample source xml file
set I could access to do that? I guess I could have Oxygen create one from the
DTD but a real one has more appeal. I do have an old Antenna House license if
I need to use it.
