while transforming an xsl:fo file into pdf, i'd like to know how to render my page in landscape in the pdf file.
In fact, i need to have my page in landscape and separated in two columns.

u have to set page master some thing like this

This will create a Landscape output with .5in margin on each edge.
For seperating in to two different columns,u have use tables.
Please refer this site to more about creating table.
currently in FOP processor u have specify the column width explicitly and specify column datas in fo block.
(not a big drawback)

or else u can try renderx but u have buy it.;)
