Below is an excerpt of an explanation for XSLT, took out from http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/xmlsdk/htm/xslt_starter_54dw.asp:
"XSL is now generally referred to as XSL Formatting Objects (XSL-FO), to distinguish it from XSLT. The future of XSL-FO as a standard is uncertain, because much of its functionality overlaps with that provided by cascading style sheets (CSS) and the HTML tag set. If cross-vendor compatibility is important, you might want to avoid XSL-FO until it becomes a standard fully accepted by the Worldwide Web Consortium."
Can I consider valid the declaration above? I really want to use XLS-FO as standard in the company I work for, as base document format for report generation, but this declaration could make me hesitate to. I would appreciate any thoughts.
