Here is an overview of the issue:
        Key: FOR-112
    Summary: PDF page size and orientation in skinconf.xml
       Type: New Feature

     Status: Assigned
   Priority: Minor

    Project: Forrest
  Component: Forrest skins

   Assignee: Juan Jose Pablos
   Reporter: Florian G. Haas

    Created: Mon, 9 Feb 2004 12:33 AM

Environment: Tested on Linux with JDK 1.4.2_01-b06.

Inspired by Ross Gardler's reply to my forrest-dev post titled "Tables, FOP, and page orientation",
here is a patch that allows the user to set the PDF page size and orientation in skinconf.xml.
Warning: I'm not sure if the patch isn't too disruptive to existing installations -- please
take a look.

Patch summary:
* Changes the skinconf.xml DTD and corresponding .rnc to allow an optional "pdf" element,
containing an "page" element with attributes "size" and "orientation".

* Modifies src/core/context/skins/common/xslt/fo/document2fo.xsl to read these two attributes
from skinconf.xml, and to determine page-height and page-width attributes on simple-page-master

* Modifies src/core/context/sitemap.xmap to actually pass the "config-file" parameter to the
FO/PDF pipeline, which it didn't do before. I'm not sure whether this actually constitutes
a bug fix, or whether passing in the parameter was previously considered unnecessary -- but
since document2fo.xsl does specify the parameter, I suspect it should be passed in.

Page sizes currently supported are ISO A0 - A5, US Legal & Letter, Executive, Folio, Ledger,
and Tabloid. Supported page orientations are portrait and landscape. Default is US Letter
portrait to match the current hardwired page setup.

I suppose the "pdf" element in skinconf.xml could (should) later be extended to allow for
custom page margins etc.
