Not actually, but why do you want it? What's wrong with an ordinary xml
editor? xslt is xml after all.
Its appears that fop is treating all the xslt and html mark up as
instructions, almost as if it isnt namespace aware...
Don't offend FOP :), it's surely namespace aware. But FOP is only a FO
Processor and xsl-fo is the only language it understands, no html and no xslt
(although you can run it with -xml my.xml -xsl my.xsl arguments and FOP will
run transformation to xsl-fo for you).
I've only started
on xsl:fo today (with the help Dave P's online book, cheers dave!) so
any gentle looseners are appreciated.
Usually you have xml file with your data and xsl stylesheet (you can find lots
of them in FOP distribution examples or in Dave's book) and you can run FOP to
format them into a pdf. Take a look at xml.apache.org/fop site and feel free
to ask inevitable questions here or in fop-user mail list.
