This can be a great opportunity to earn good money for a person/team who likes challenges. The task is to create stylesheet file (XSL) that can be used to convert sample XML file (attached) into format (preferably XML) that can be opened in Adobe FrameMaker 7.2 and will present data in layout shown in attached doc file. Layout must be followed precisely; this includes location and alignment of images, cell- and row- spanning, header/footer location and small differences in their content on even and odd pages. Resulting stylesheet must conform to 1.1 specs (don't use features from later specifications of XSLT)and work with Saxon. We are experienced XSL/XML developers and we have spent some time on this project and have some understanding but lack of experience with Adobe FrameMaker and it's XML features doesn't allow us to complete it ourselves. The time is more important then cost for this project. With your bid please submit the timeframe you require to complete this project and I will adjust deadline accordingly. Please keep in mind that we will not tolerate delays on this project. We also expect a short explanation on how you're planning to work on this project. If you don't have experience with FrameMaker's XML features it's not a problem but we strongly urge you to try and create a proof-of-concept (POC) before submitting your bid, as this task may seem simpler then it really is.
