I am using FOP Apache to generate and publish a pdf from XML and need to create bookmarks so when you open the pdf in adobe the left menu will show links to sections in the document.

I am told that the only way to do this is by using the extension fox:OUTLINE and fox:label elements. Are there any other options without using these extensions?

This really is an effort to become 508 compliant. Basically this is a Government Standard that says any PDF that is published should be designed for the hearing impaired and the 508 compliance is a set of standards to adhere to. One of the requirements is that you have bookmarks on pdfs over 9 pages.
