9780131403741: Definitive XSL-FO (Definitive XML)

Definitive XSL-FO delivers concise, authoritative coverage of every key facet of the new W3C recommendation, XSL-FO. XSL-FO (XSL Formatting Objects) is the critical enabling technology that allows enterprise applications to produce production-quality output from large XML data stores. There is a large constituency of users of information who prefer the printed format of physical pages over the screen format of a web document. As more web services are deployed and more companies bring more of their information into XML structures, the need for the printed form will grow. Developers have long been used to producing HTML reports and screen-based results, without considering paginating their information into a form (such as a PDF file) suitable for printing.

From the Back Cover:

“Holman is my main source of information on XSL-FO … a life saver on projects where we print XML information.”

—W. Eliot Kimber, ISOGEN International

  • Format, paginate, and publish your XML data with full graphic-arts quality!
  • Comprehensive: Covers every formatting object in the W3C® XSL-FO Recommendation
  • Proven: Based on fully tested materials used in public seminars and corporate training programs throughout the world
  • Concise: Bullet-point, bite-size presentation helps you master XSL-FO fast!
  • Authoritative: From the founder of the OASIS XML and XSLT conformance committees

“For centuries, humanity has accessed information with proven page-oriented navigational tools and sophisticated formatting. Just printing Web pages won’t do this job for your data—you need the power of XSL-FO. Join the thousands who have learned how from Ken Holman.”

—Charles F. Goldfarb

The definitive guide to state-of-the-art XML publishing with XSL-FO!

  • Static content and page geometry sequencing
  • Footnotes, floats, breaks, keeps, spacing, borders, and backgrounds
  • Interactive objects for dynamic displays
  • Supplemental publishing objects, including bidirectional Unicode scripts
