Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Considering XSL-FO as a graphics file format

Hi Gordon,
Since you are already using XSL to process the literal layouts, another 
approach would be to incorporate those templates into the stylesheet 
customization layer that formats the document.  Then you can do it all in 
one pass.
