FYI.  I don't wish to confuse things but you
may wish to look at, or possibly even coordinate with,
the dblatex project (http://dblatex.sourceforge.net/).
dblatex generates pdf and various ebook formats, I think,
and uses TeX and it's friends to do the heavy lifting.  
(The result looks quite nice, to my inexpert eye.)

I'm a bit of a novice here and it's hard for me to
tell just how much overlap/compatibility there is
between the processing options used by fo and
dblatex.  It sure would be nice if they were compatible....
