FOP is a Java-based processor to generate typeset documents (e.g.
PDF's). PassiveTeX does the same thing but is written in TeX. I have fop
now setup on sina so I was able to generate PDF's fine (English ones).

But with Arabic PDF's I get "####" for Arabic characters since the font
doesn't have the required glyphs. Not sure how it all ties in together.

Hrmm.. how do you do that without having to go back and edit the HTML
output? When you're writing the document in XML, you (well, I) usually
don't put spaces after tags.. but the generated HTML output is a whole
other story.

Right.. but not the direction.
