Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Re: need help with Passivetex errors

Thanks very much for your detailed explanations. I gonna take this 
challenge as soon as i got the time.

I tried FOP already and the rendering isnt as nice as i expected. 
example: the pagenumbering in the table of content doesnt look very 

What about Passivetex rendering: Are there any /many problems like 
this? Or can you really generate a printable PDF for real life (which 
means: it looks very fine) 

Are there any webpages which compares FOP/PassiveText/XEP (are there 
any others?) with showing real world pdfs to look at?

kind regards
