With apologies, I was not offering to help.

My suggestion for you to clarify your question was made on behalf of the list as a whole: by and large, the only requests for assistance that that go completely unanswered (as yours has) are the ones that are not answerable within the constraints of the list. I thought you should know that we weren't simply ignoring you (there might be readers who would help if they could, but they can't), and tried to indicate how you could make your question answerable.

But you haven't done that. Please note, in particular, that the list does not accept attachments. (Attachments tend to clog the pipes, and their contents are invisible unless we open them. They can also be unsafe to share among strangers.)

If you want an answer to your question, you are going to have to be more specific as to what it is.

PDF files are created by FOP 0.95. FO files can also be created using XALAN. Here are the command lines I am using for FO and PDF outputs.

1) fop -d -xml 2005651869151275492_copy4_change1.xml -xsl

Thanks Wendell. Here is a simple test case. Attached the input XML, XSL files zip and the output FO and PDF files. the input XML was saved in Word 2007(also tried setting save format to Word 2003 XML) and the body/content did not get processed by the XSL thus creating a blank PDF. Please let me know if you need more info. The input XML files are creating PDFs with the same content and layout fine as long as not opened by the Word 2007.
