I started looking at FOP for the first time last week, & it is indeed interesting. However I think a GUI tool would be more prudent for us, as our clients are *very* fussy about layouts. A lot of them use pre-printed form letters so the report elements have to align perfectly, which I suspect could all get a bit tedious with XSLT.
