    Dear All,

    We are pleased to announce that RenderX have recently released a
    library of XSLT stylesheets that produce SVG representation of the
    following barcode formats:
            - Code 3 of 9/Code 3 of 9 extended
            - Code 128
            - UPC/EAN
            - Code 2 of 5 Interleaved
            - Australia Post 4-State Barcode
            - Codabar

    Our generators support the full range of barcode properties including
    checksum generation (except for Codabar). All stylesheets are heavily
    parameterized: you can control bars width/height, wide-to-narrow
    ratio, quiet zone size, font properties for human readable label, etc.

    RenderX barcode library is freely available at

    On the same page you will also find a simple online demo for each
    supported barcode type - the SVG image generated by a stylesheet is
    inserted into an XSL FO wrapper and rendered to PDF by RenderX XEP
    formatter. The online demo is limited to the basic flavor of the
    respective barcode. To assess the full power of the stylesheets,
    download them and try offline.

    We believe that these utilities may be of interest for SVG and XSLT
    communities - either as a sample of implementation of complex logic in
    an XSLT, or as a demonstration of dynamically generated SVG applied to
    everyday business needs.

    Best regards,
