Excuse me to come into the discussion without bringing you any answer (I don't
know anything about PDFwriter an distiller) but another question. You say that
you use "DSSSL to produce PDF"... what engine do you have ? I would be very
interested to find DSSSL engine that can generate PDF from XML doc.

Hello Guillaume,

I'm using the RTF back-end and Word'97 with the Acrobat products to use DSSSL to generate PDF from an XML (or SGML) document.

Another option is using the TeX back-end to generate PDF.

I suspect Frame would also have a way of going to PDF using an Adobe product the way I do so with Word'97, so there would be another way of getting PDF.

To go *directly* to PDF using DSSSL, check out the commercial DSSSL engine named "DSSSLprint" from NextSolution in Japan:

I hope this helps.
