   Re: [xml-dev] electronic newspaper

[ Lists Home | Date Index | Thread Index ]

I see this formatting task having a different 
raison d'Ítre than that targeted by XSL-FO:

   "The electronic paper is displayed in columns and it
    formats itself to fit any size screen."

XSL-FO is for paginated presentation with a 
prescribed layout (columns, margins, etc.) set out by the stylesheet writer.
