Maybe I just took you wrong but I wouldn't claim that DSSSL technology  
is "falling down". It is stable in a positive sense, although it is no  
longer evolving. I still write all scientific manuscripts in SGML and  
process them with the DSSSL stylesheets because the publishers want  
word processor files, not PDFs. So the question is whether the default  
stylesheets do what you need with a minimum number of tweaks. If yes,  
it is a possible route to explore. If no, you're pretty much on your  
own, although a few DSSSL fossils still hang out :-)
