Hi Mike,
in that case I'd probably look at FOP - theres this which may give you
variable mileage :
http://www.antennahouse.com/XSLsample/sample-xsl-xhtml2fo/xhtml2fo.xsl  (ref
here: http://www.antennahouse.com/XSLsample/XSLsample.htm )

to go from your xhtml to your basic FOP.. a bit of tweaking and that as a
starting point might do the trick. if its a fairly small subset of the xhtml
spec that its using , you could get a pretty good directed transform going.

this might be useful if you want to go down that route:
http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/0.94/servlets.html#xslt be happy to offer
any pointers etc.

Cheers

Tim
