apache fop to transform an XML file to get a pdf using XSLT

Hi experts,

I’m using apache fop to transform an XML file to get a pdf using XSLT.

I have this node and I would like to display the information in the pdf file in 3 different rows

<cfdi:Traslado impuesto="IVA" tasa="16.00" importe="109.20" />
<cfdi:Traslado impuesto="IEPS" tasa="20.00" importe="91.00" />
<cfdi:Traslado impuesto="IEPS" tasa="50.00" importe="227.50" />

IVA 16% = $109.20
IEPS 20 % = $91.00
IEPS 50% = $227.50

Could you please give me an example for that?

Here is the XSLT that will get you started

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"

	<xsl:output method="xml" version="1.0" omit-xml-declaration="no" indent="yes"/>

	<xsl:template match="/">
		<fo:root font-family="Helvetica">
			<!-- layout master set -->
			<xsl:call-template name="layout-master-set"/>
			<fo:page-sequence master-reference="test-page">
				<fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
	<xsl:template match="cfdi:Traslado">
		<fo:block font-size="12pt" font-weight="bold">
			<xsl:value-of select="@impuesto"/>
			<xsl:text> </xsl:text>
			<xsl:value-of select="@tasa"/>
			<xsl:text>% = $</xsl:text>
			<xsl:value-of select="@importe"/>

	<xsl:template name="layout-master-set">

you off course need to change this
in the actual document namespace

It would help if you posted wellformed or vald XML snippets for testing
I had to make up a namespace to get it going
