What do you think about doing a stylesheet from XSL-FO to SVG and then

formatting, the mixing of SVG images, and browsing.

Wouldn't doing FO to SVG (FOS?) require being able to predict where text breaks? Maybe not at the individual line level, but certainly at the rectangle (column or page) level. I don't think it's possible to implement that in XSLT, at least not without implementing a full XSL rendering algorithm in XSL (possible, since XSLT is Turing complete, but I certainly don't want to think about it).
