The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) released Extensible Style sheet Language (XSL) Version1.0 as a W3C Recommendation on 15 October 2001. XSL Formatter V3 is an XSL formatting engine that conforms to XSL V1.0 W3C Recommendation.
Building on over 4 years of experience developing XSL-FO software Antenna House has completely written from scratch an entirely new Formatter that offers significant enhancements and provides a solid foundation on which to continue to move forward.
Format a very very large document
The V3 formatting engine has been developed from scratch to be able to format "any" size of document. This overcomes the V2.X limitation of approximately 4,000 pages in a single document.
V3.0 is one of the fastest XSL Formatters available and is significantly faster than XSL Formatter V2.X.
PDF output on a server with PDF direct creation module
PDF output is a standard function of V3. An unlimited number of users can now convert XML to PDF on a web server by utilizing our PDF direct creation engine.
New SVG support for output module
V3.0 has newly developed SVG support to retain the vector information for the output module thus meeting the increasing demands for SVG delivery and viewing.
Antenna House provides Command line, COM interface, .NET interface, Java interface and C++/C interface. (The COM and the .NET interfaces are available only for Windows.). The various interfaces make for easy system integration.
Possible to stream input/output
V3.0 supports direct streaming of both the input FO and output PDF. Since it does not go through a temporary disk file, system integration is easier and moreover is safer.
Possible to hyphenate over 40 or more languages
XSL Formatter Hyphenation Option makes it possible to hyphenate 40 or more languages without preparing dictionaries.
