Subject Re: Defining XML Entities in FOP 2.2
Date Tue, 16 May 2017 13:49:16 GMT
Since the XSLT front end functionality in FOP serves merely as a
convenience function for the user, you may choose to use alternative tools
not integrated into FOP as your front end. I suggest you do this in order
to transform from your input data set into XSL-FO input files which you can
feed directly to FOP without making use of the the XSLT front end found in
FOP that does not support XML Entities.
