lots of Lisp textbooks, though, and thats the big learning point (IMHO)

um, I cant remember how to do it in DSSSL, but surely someone on this

I am biased, because I do this most days of the week:-}

 TEI XML    ->  XSL FO  ->   PDF
           (a)         (b)

where (a) is an XSLT processor and my TEI FO stylesheets, and b) is a
a special version of TeX which parses XSL FO (see material on TEI web

I fear we are going off-topic for a DSSSL list, though!
