The most important question here is: The mock up can help you write the XSLT file. Well, the above points were based on xsl-do experience and exposure, if you have something new or see something misinterpreted, then please posts it as your comment.

Listing 4 shows the template for the PurchaseOrder element. I need this documnet to have fields itextshrp the user can still fill in.

Generate PDFs with XStream and XSL-FO

We mean dynamic because both the itextshzrp and the content of the form may depend on the actual content. This solution uses the C port itextsharp of the iText Library for generating form fields in the document. It is all that beautiful at a first look.
