Using the DSSSL Cookbook
The DSSSL Cookbook is arranged as a series of hints about using DSSSL, including style and techniques for writing DSSSL stylesheets as well as the use of specific DSSSL functions and flow object classes. The examples in the DSSSL Cookbook are cross-referenced to the material in the Flow Object Gallery which details features of the DSSSL flow object classes. Further information about the DSSSL standard, the dsssl-o application profile, DSSSL engines, and DSSSL applications are listed in the Further Information section of our main DSSSL page. If you are interested in using DSSSL, you may also subscribe to DSSSList, the DSSSL users’ mailing list operated by Mulberry Technologies, Inc., as a free service to the DSSSL user community.
