Hi Sebastian,

I cannot speak for Explorer (Microsoft IE) but for Mozilla the probability
of having XSLT before the end of the year is very high. We are working on
this. The probability to have XSLFO is very very low. We are not working on
it. This is too much work to reconcile CSS objects and XSLFO objects.
Because XSLT can manipulate CSS object. We don't put any effort on XSLFO.

I don't buy this "2 years" thing. either we'll see plausible XSL
FO-based printing by Christmas, or never. If one cannot whip up a
thing that takes FOs and runs them through, say,  TeX within a few
months of the next release of XSL, then it'll be because its fatally
flawed. That'll buy you printing of XML files via a single XSL
route. I dont say we'll see *browsers* implementing FO interpretation
so fast, but maybe
