Much of the C code for the Sun xmlroff XSL formatter [1] is generated
from the XML for the XSL 1.0 Recommendation.

If I may speak for Dave Pawson, the appendices in his XSL FO book are
also generated from the XML for the XSL 1.0 Recommendation.

As are the annexes and a number of places within our book on XSL-FO. I just counted them and I use XSLT to create 149 external parsed general entity fragments from the XSL 1.0 Recommendation that I then include by reference into the body of our XSL-FO book at the required points.
