    I have successfully rendered an XML FO file ( into PDF even when that
    XSL FO file is over 13MB in size. (The resulting PDF was 11MB). Thus,
    size alone isn't the problem. In my case, I had to increase my Windows
    2000 virtual memory to over 2GB to do the XSLT transformation from XML into
    XSL FO, but it nonetheless rendered just fine.

    Sorry I can't help with your problem,
