   Well, first of all, you wouldn't translate HTML to DSSSL, you'd
translate HTML to PDF *using* DSSSL, just as you could do the
translation using (a program written in) C.
   If you just want to convert an HTML document to PDF, there are some
DSSSL stylesheets for HTML already available which should do a
sufficient job.  Is this what you're after, or did you have something
else in mind?
