The combination of DocBook-XSL and Fop works fine for me.

What versions of either are you running?  On what platform?

I'm using DocBook-XSL 1.48, and Fop 20.3rc, on jdk-1.3.1, on GNU/linux
(both debian woody and RedHat 7.2).

I've used, let me see... saxon, xalan, and xsltproc to create the FO,
and all have worked fine for me (not sure what versions I have used
all the time).
