I also write endnote ridden articles in xml, which I need to go over in
a pretty format before sending off them off. Since in one case it had to
be in that popular non-standard format (MS Word), I worked out a way to
create Open Office documents, which I then could save as MS Word.
I simply unzipped the OO files to see the xml behind sample file I wrote
in OO, and wrote the xsl to write out what OO was expecting. So far it
works quite nicely, and I have a pretty format in which to proofread the
article. I go back and edit the xml and regenerate a new copy of the OO
document after all the changes are made.
This is not what Chuck is looking for, but it has done the job for me.
It is not very difficult to write the fo:xx objects that OO needs to
make its files for the simple output I need, including endnotes. This is
different from the much larger problem that Sebastian alluded to:

That would be good, but if Sebastian has difficulty getting it to work
then it is clearly not something I want to tackle!
If anyone is interested I can supply my own notes, but most things are a
google away, e.g. http://www.xml.com/pub/a/2004/02/04/tr-xml.html
