CSS for Print

For organizations who have straightforward print layout needs and are frustrated with the high cost and complexity of the XLS FO formatting language,  using CSS3 as your print formatting language is a relatively new approach that we feel is a viable alternative to the XSL-FO language.
CSS Paged Media provides advanced print features and benefits. My team has performed research, development, and delivered reliable PDF results. The CSS solution has improved our speed to market, reduced our FO budget, and simplified technical resource sourcing.

What can the audience expect to learn?

Combined with Antenna House formatting software, attendees learn that CSS is a viable output language that provides a larger talent pool and a lower cost.
