Subject Re: Cocoon+XML+FOP -> .fo -> .pdf ?
Date Wed, 28 Jun 2000 18:30:24 GMT
In your initial xml file place the following lines (outside the document root):

<?cocoon-process type="xslt"?>
<?xml-stylesheet href="make-fo.xsl" type="text/xsl"?>

where make-fo.xsl is your stylesheet.
Within the make-fo.xsl page place the following line:

<xsl:template match="your-doc-root-tag">
<fo:root ...

For a more detailed example look at the source in "samples/fo/novel-fo.xsl" and
"samples/fo/darkness-novel.xml" in the cocoon distribution.
