Hi everybody, I'm looking for some answers about what xsl-fo can do and I hope some of you could help me. I'm new in this list and in xsl-fo, I've searched and read other posts, but I haven't found the answers. So, thank you very much for your time. I want to show the 'same content' but formatted for different page sizes. So, let's say I have size1, size2 and size3. And let's say I have an xsl1 which is for size1. The layout of the page is similar to a newspaper, it means, several text and images blocks, sometimes multicolumn, hyphenation and intelligent paragraph layout. As I know the size of the blocks/areas, if I want to show this on the size2 page, it's easy to resize the areas. But, of course, the text inside the areas will have to change (more or less text, different hyphen positions, bigger column size...) in order to fit the new size and be readable. I think I'll probably have to change the font size of the text in order to maintain the proportion (I'm not sure about this). So, my questions here are: 1. Is this something xsl-fo can handle? Is xsl-fo suited for this? Is the best way? 2. Can I just work whit an xsl1 for size1, resize the areas for size2 and that's all or is it a more complex process and it will involve to create new xsl (new design) for every size I have? 3. If size3 is much smaller than size1, the only option is to remove some areas from the page. Is there a way to do this with the xsl1 and, let's say, applying priorities to the different blocks, so if the page size is small, it removes less priority areas and 'reorder/expand' the other ones (maybe I'm asking too much)? 4. What happens with images? I know these are a lot of questions an I'd really appreciat your comments. Again, thank you very much for your help.
