[ANN] PassiveTeX XSL FO implementation, 1.1
Date: 10/4/2000 2:17:00 PM
I have made a new release of my PassiveTeX XSL FO processor on http://users.ox.ac.uk/~rahtz/passivetex. There are a variety of bug fixes (nothing too dramatic), and some new implementations of FO elements and characteristics. One important addition is that fo:marker and fo:retrieve-marker now work, more or less, allowing dynamic headers and footers. I have tested this by formatting the XSL FO spec itself, with satisfactory results. As ever, PassiveTeX is for you if - you have an existing TeX system which you understand - you need decent hyphenation, justification and page-breaking now - you want MathML support - you want high-quality PDF (compressed, bookmarks, links etc) - you are into big files and long batch processing It isn't for you if - you want a Java solution which you can embed - you have never seen TeX and dont want to - you want SVG support - your life revolves around complex tables http://www.oucs.ox.ac.uk/courses/coursebook.pdf is a typical example of what I use this system for. I expect, by the way, to share TeX details with the Unicorn XSL FO processor in the future; and possibly move to a comparable method myself.
