I checked the archive and found the one I meant. Here is the post that started the thread:

Just thought people would be interested:

We are using Velocity to create PDF documents. The approach we used combines
velocity, XSLT transforms and the FOP engine to generate documents
dynamically. I'm not sure if this use of Velocity is unique.

We have also done something similar with OpenOffice documents - pulling apart
the openoffice document, processing the content.xml file inside and then
repackaging it to be delivered to the client directly. This way we use a
template OO file to deliver database dynamic documents.

Finally we have another XSLT based system for generating PDF reports. The
report is first filled in with Velocity, then passed onto the rendering
engine which runs it through XSLT a few times before using the FOP engine.
