I intend to use XSL-FO to generate potentially tens of thousands of pages
in PDF format. Not necessarily all in one go, probably a couple of hundred
at a time. I am testing all my scripts using FOP which I have noted is
XSL Formatter 3.0 claims to be optimized for speed and to be quite
faster than XSL Formatter 2.x. It seemed to be so in the few tests I
ran, but I didn't put it head to head against XEP. Unfortunatly, XSL
Formatter 3.0 still lacks a few key features, so it may not be usable
for all FO applications.
Advent's 3B2 formatter is very fast, so I would expect their FO
implementation to be fast as well (depending on how they've implemented
the mapping from FO constructs to the 3B2 typesetting language, but I
haven't had a chance to test it yet.
