Subject Re: print date at document view time

Yes, there is no such thing in XSL-FO. There's also nothing in PDF that
would allow to do this. After all, FOP doesn't send the PDF to the
printer. FOP doesn't know when you print your PDF using Acrobat Reader,
for example. The only thing you can do is put the current date into the
XSL-FO document at the XSLT stage using EXSLT date and time functions,
for example.
