XSL-FO: LaTeX Advanced

So I was looking at TestXSLT, a generic XSLT editor and test suite for Mac OS X (wow... how could I lived without it), when I noticed this "XSL-FO" thingy.

You know LaTeX? You spent years learning it? You wasted your time. Read the specs here, and try it yourself here (you only need Java).

So why should we use LaTeX again? Oh yeah, when you want to make a nice math formula... But once it's done in LaTeX, I'll export the PS to a high-res GIF and include that in my XSL-FO, thank you.

Submission Text Formatting Tips

We support a small subset of HTML, namely these tags:

  • b
  • i
  • p
  • br
  • a
  • ol
  • ul
  • li
  • dl
  • dt
  • dd
  • em
  • strong
  • tt
  • blockquote
  • div
  • quote
  • ecode

"ecode" can be used for code snippets, for example:

<ecode>    while(1) { do_something(); } </ecode>
