You will need to use XSLT to do the conversion. The Apache Cocoon project offers a way to accomplish this either by writing your own XSLT file or using one of there 'serializers'. Go to http://xml.apache.org/cocoon/overview.html.

MS based XSL-FO processors

by ken.ross In reply to xml to pdf conversion

Yes. The easiest way I know is to transform the output with an XSLT into XSL-FO and then use and XSL-FO processor to render it to PDF.

Antennahouse has a XSL-FO processor which renders PDF documents. When last I knew you can download an eval copy from their website.
