proof-of-concept thing; its main purpose is to enable browsing the content of an
XSL FO document with  a regular browser,  it doesn't care about subtle
formatting niceties. (The last MSXML3 preview release lacks quite a few to
support this stylesheet; hopefully, the next one will permit us to ascribe the
stylesheet to FO documents, thus enabling their direct viewing in MS IE5).

Naturally, we have conceived this stylesheet as an add-on to our main product,
XEP; therefore, the stylesheet supports the same obsolete version of XSL FO
draft as XEP (and FOP) does. (I know Sebastian will blame me... ;-)) Upgrading
it to the last draft is however not a difficult task; I will do it when we
release the next version of XEP, unless someone does it before (any

The thing is located at Please visit and enjoy.
