Xhtml2fo.xsl is an XSLT stylesheet that is to be used as follows.

(1) First step
* convert xhtml file, this must be an well-formed xml file with the
 grammer defined by xhtml.dtd, to xsl-fo file.

Input:  xhtml.html  and xhtml2fo.xsl
Output: (an XSL-FO instance)
Processor: XSLT Processor.

(2) Second step
* convert to PDF
Input: (an XSL-FO instance)
Output: xhtml.pdf (PDF file)
Processor: XSL-FO Processors

Antenna House XSL Formatter is an XSL FO Processor in it's nature.
It invokes MSXML3.DLL internally when XML and XSLT sytlesheets
are selected as input files.

Antenna House XSL Formatter can not create PDF file by itself,
but print PDF by deginating PDFWriter.
