Very impressive work. Thank you for sharing.
I have a few questions:
- since you know LaTeX, did you try the Asciidoc (unsupported) LaTeX
- what about dblatex? did you try using that too?
- do you have a particular reason to use FOP for this type of work.
I ask because your work seems to be easier handled with LaTeX rather
than FOP, and given that you know LaTeX both the backend LaTeX
generator and dblatex support would seem a natural fit. I know the
backend LaTeX generator may not have been up-to-date with the current
version of Asciidoc but it works nicely with previous versions.
I look forward to your answers.
