Another good one from Slashdot. Printing XML: Why CSS Is Better than XSL. Of course, it would be nice web browsers supported all of the CSS printing goodness that they outline. On the positive side, in the comments someone mentions css2xslfo. Ironically, this converts your nice, concise CSS to the very format that the authors are blasting. However, XSL-FO can produce nice output, and it can do it today. So, having a free tool to produce good PDFs out of your HTML/CSS is a bonus.
