We are running a three-day comprehensive hands-on XSLT/XPath training
course in Ottawa, Canada October 1-3, followed by XSLFO on October 4-5. We
cover *every* XSLT/XPath instruction and function and *every* XSLFO
formatting object during the two courses. Due to time constraints we do
not cover all 246 XSLFO properties, but we cover enough that students have
been very pleased with the results.
We have a number of licensees around the world who also deliver this
material (one of them is in Toronto), and the list of licensees is found on
our schedule page where we summarize the abstracts of all our courses.

We sell the electronic publication "Practical Transformation Using XSLT and
XPath" for individual, site-staff and world-staff licenses. This contains
more detailed low-level information than the instructor-led, but does not
