[xsl] Re: xsl 2.0?
I've followed this thread with great interest.
I'm the in-house XML Developer for a large US defense company. XSL-FO is
used extensively in military technical publishing. We have complex
documents with extensive cross referencing and strict pagination
requirements. I cannot see CSS ever supporting those requirements. There
are some MIL-STD specifications that XSL-FO does not support either. The
government has actually had to update the specifications because of the
lack of FO support for requirements. I was disappointed to read about
the lack of support in the XSL-FO 2.0 working group. I agree with Ken
Holman that XSL-FO 1.2 may be more in order. In my industry we have a
great need for the ability to create continued headers for tasks or
sections, similar to how table-markers work in 1.1.
