9. Things for LaTeX users to remember

  • No use is made of LaTeX high-level constructs. No sections, no lists, no cross-refs, no bibliographies; on the other hand, some extensions in the fotex: namespace are supported (eg to get Acrobat bookmarks)
  • XSL FO's underlying character set is Unicode; by default, entities are mapped to their Unicode position;
  • All vertical and horizontal space is explicit in the specification
  • Page and line breaking is left to TeX: the rest is up to you.
