Any good tutorials on this stuff. How about a really nice cool GUI tool that can build PDF Master Layouts, so that you put place holders for the XML values, and then you save the Layout and parse XML documents with this newly created XSL file.
Map, I think you need to build a tool like this.

Do you currently have a XSL which can dynamically read XML file?
Thanks.

Hi Mark,
You might know these links but anyway its worth mentioning again.
chapter 18recently updated
dave pawson FAQ similar to xslt FAQ by Mike kay.
Everyone is using Apache FOP(as for as i heared),Apache FOP is free,faster than renderx,its recent release(version 0.20.4) supports background image.


Map, I think you need to build a tool like this.


Yes Map,then it for sure u can earn good money,currently there is no IDE for XSL:FO.I found many european companies were using XSL:FO than US and other countries.The present command line tool renderx tool cost $5000(~app),it has good error reporting than FOP,but once if you get used to XSL:FO u can eliminate the error urself.
Above site has many good examples just try to run it,if you have doubts,post here
Rendering PDF is not easy like HTML,just a small error will leads to alignment errors.
