   Announce: XSL training and no-charge UBL to PDF formatting announced at

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

In a XML'2005 poster in Atlanta today, Crane Softwrights Ltd. 
announced the availability of commercial-grade publishing of UBL 
instances to PDF format with freely-downloadable components[1].

Using digitally-signed XSL-FO stylesheet manifests, users of the 
Universal Business Language 1.0 vocabulary[2] can use the Crane UBL 
XSLT/XSL-FO stylesheets unchanged to produce quality PDF renderings 
from UBL XML document instances using the Java-based Ibex Signature 
Edition XSL-FO processor.  There are no charges to download and use 
these components to produce UN Layout Key renderings of instances of 
UBL's eight document types.

Also announced is the scheduling of publicly-subscribed XSL 
training[3] in Denver Colorado the week of March 13-17, 2006: 3 days 
hands-on XSLT followed by 2 days hands-on XSL-FO.  Discounts are 
available for early registration and for attending both sessions.

Please let me know if you should have any questions on either of 
these announcements.

[2] The OASIS Universal Business Language (UBL) defines a generic XML 
interchange format for business documents.   UBL is designed to 
provide a universally understood and recognized commercial syntax for 
legally binding business documents and to operate within a standard 
business framework such as ISO 15000 (ebXML) to provide a complete, 
standards-based infrastructure that can extend the benefits of 
existing EDI systems to businesses of all sizes. UBL is freely 
available to everyone without legal encumbrance or licensing fees.
