Hi Ganael,

have a look at and you will see, 
that you need XSL FO for FOP.

Use the PDF serializer. Have a look at the "Hello World" examples, one 
is in PDF.

I would prefer XML => XSL FO, but I heard from a HTML to XSL FO 
converter. If you use something like Docbook you don't neede to write 
the stylesheets, they exist already. But Docbook is really complex, main 
  target of Docbook is technical documentation. (,
