Let me know what error messages you're getting, what versions of the
xsls, and I'll see if I can explain it. I suspect a CR v. PR thing. XEP
can give you a good looking pdf. I haven't looked at Antenna house
lately, but at first they were emphasizing print output and not
supporting pdfish things so much. That was a while back tho. One nice
thing about antenna house if you're tweaking fo xsls is that you can use
it like a browser--make a change to the xsl, hit refresh, and see what
happens. A hackers dream.

You have to talk to a sales rep and they send you some keys that expire
after a while. With epic you'll be evaluating an editor and renderer.

Many long threads on the subject of xml editors, wysiwyg, etc in the
archives of docbook-apps and xml-doc
<http://groups.yahoo.com/group/xml-doc/>.  It'd be useful to find some
of the more informative posts on the subject and general reviews of
editors and put links to them in the FAQ.
