Yes, but the relevant page on the TEI website says:
XSL Stylesheets for TEI XML: a customizable suite of XSLT
stylesheets for formatting TEI documents. Outputs in HTML or
PDF. Comes with an easy form-filling interface . We are
collecting other material in this area (see here, and welcome
And the information on the stylesheets appears, to me at any rate, to
suggest using PassiveTeX:
The XSL FO style sheets were developed for use with
PassiveTeX (http://www.tei-c.org/Software/passivetex/), a system
using XSL formatting objects to render XML to PDF via LaTeX. They
have not been extensively tested with the other XSL FO
Perhaps your advice should appear there as well to warn people off who
don't use TeX on a daily basis.
BTW, I have found a much easier solution. I simply loaded the HTML file
into OpenOffice, tweaked the formatting a bit and then exported it to PDF.
Will have to redo the TOC to insert page numbers but other than that, it
worked quite well.
Hope you are having a great evening!
