Subject: Re: DOCBOOK-APPS: Re: need help with Passivetex errors (part 1 of 2))

Janning asks:


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?


I've found (as Giuseppe noted in his last response to this thread) that
PassiveTeX renders a decent PDF as long as no tables are involved. My

DocBook XSL 1.53.0
xsltproc (libxml22-2.4.24/libxslt-1.20)
PassiveTeX 1.18 (with Bob Stayton's updates to fotex.sty and fotex.xmt)
teTeX 1.0.7 (the -38.2 RPM from December 2001)
pdfTeX (Web2C 3.14159-0.14h-released-20010417

See the attached zip files for an example pdf rendered from the included
example xml. I'm not thrilled with the rendering of the informaltable, but
it's usable.
