Learn how to write XSL Formatting Objects (XSL-FO).  Write an XSLT
stylesheet that will transform your input XML document into an XSL-FO
document.  Apply that stylesheet to your XML.  Use an XSL-FO to PDF
converter like the Apache Project's FOP ( or
PassiveTeX ( to do the final
conversion from XSL-FO to PDF.

The draft XSL spec ( is the normative
reference for formatting objects.  Read that if you want to get the final
word on XSL-FO.  The reference for FOP and Norman Walsh's XSL tutorial
also cover XSL-FO.
