Instead of using FOP to generate printed output, I cobbled together
an XSLT stylesheet that translates docbook to LaTeX.  That works
pretty well.

Sample input:
HTML output:
LaTex output:
PDF output generated from above:

It does require a little bit of pre- and post-processing
using the standard Unix 'sed' command, in addition to xsltproc,
and TeX.  Somebody who know xslt and docbook better could probably
do a better job, but I can provide the scripts if interested.
