Oke, thanks again, getting closer...

The next problem is: Cannot find a matching 1-argument function named

With the xsl:template as follows:

 <xsl:template match="Content" xmlns:saxon="";>
                <xsl:if test=". != ''">
                        <fo:block space-after="10mm">
                                <xsl:variable name="htmlContent" select="saxon:parse(.)"/>
                                        <xsl:apply-templates select="$htmlContent"/>

How can I get the function to be found/work?

You'll need to use the lastest version of Saxon - version 8.7.3 (the extension came in around 7.x but you may as well use the latest) and then use the correct namespace
