E.g. xsltproc or any other xslt engine: .xsl suffix of the stylesheet file
hints xsl(t), .fo stands for an XSL-FO document which is XML(-syntax)
itself => all requirements for xslt are fulfilled.

Any XSL-FO renderer, e.g. FOP, PassiveTeX, XEP, or RenderX.

Uhm, sorry, haven't tried FOP myself yet. Maybe one of the experts out
there can comment on this? I just wonder why there are class files, isn't
FOP packaged as a jar file that even specifies its main-class in its
manifest, so one doesn't have to know what class to run in the java vm?
