About XML2PDF Formatting Engine

Server solution to automatically convert Word, XML, SVG and XSL-FO to PDF.

Xml2PDF Formatting Engine is an engine (.NET API) for converting XSL-FO, SVG, XHTML and Microsoft Word documents to PDF, PS, XPS, and raster graphics (TIFF, GIF, JPEG, PNG, WMF). Xml2PDF Formatting Engine uses Microsoft XML Core Services (MSXML) as an XML parser and XSLT processor. Thus, any XSLT or XML feature implemented in this parser is automatically supported. Besides the standard XML syntax validation, it provides an additional XSL FO validation against the Extensible Stylesheet Language (XSL). Supported Input XML formats include: XSL-FO, SVG (both as a stand-alone input format and as a part of XSL-FO), XHTML and Excel (.xls, .xlsx, .xlsm, .xlsb). Supported Output formats include: PDF, XPS, PS, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, PNG, WMF.
