It may be reasonable to add this preprocessing into standard XSL FO
stylesheets as many of FO users use PassiveTeX. Of course translation
will take place only when PassiveTeX extensions will be enabled. This
will slowdown stylesheet little bit, but it is less painless than manual
tweaks in source document. What do you think about it, Norm? If you
agree, I can incorporate this into stylesheets.
