XSL and Formatting Objects

Formatting Objects aka XSL-FO is a page description language published by W3C in XML format and is now in version 1.1. The main field of application is the automatic generation of PDF documents from XML data using XSLT. The target format is thereby not limited to PDF, with the creation of PostScript, RTF, WordML and MIF (Maker Interchange Format) also possible and undergoing further expansion. In the workshop, participants will learn the most basic XSL-FO elements such as graphics, tables and lists.
However, advanced use cases such as tables of contents, alternating page layouts and PDF bookmarks will also be covered. You can then generate PDF documents by linking XML files and XSL-FO elements using XSL Stylesheets.
All chapters go into further detail using a variety of exercises.



2 days


  • You will learn how to create PDF documents using simple means and open standards (XML, XSLT, XSL-FO and XPath) and open source tools (FOP) from XML files.
  • After the training, you will be able to present your XML files in the form of PDF documents.

      target group

      You would like to implement an XML application with Formatting Objects or are interested in creating PDFs from XML documents.
