Hi Tokushige,

I've still problems getting PDF using Antenna.

I tried a simpel XHTML from w3schools like:
The content of the body element is displayed in your browser.

If I use this in Antenna together with the xhtml2fo.xsl, I get the error 
("XSLT transformation result is not valid XSL-FO"). This is the same error 
I get with my complex xhtml-file.
So I never get to the second step.....

I also don't understand your remark that Antenna can't create PDF by 
itself, but uses PDFWriter to do it.

My question is still: I need a simpel method to convert XML into PDF.

Greetings Rene

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.
