A First Look At XML Publisher - Part II
March 8, 2006
Mark Rittman

Once you've done all this you end up with a template document with all your fields added, like this:

Finally you can then preview it using the Preview toolbar menu item. You can preview to HTML, PDF, Excel or RTF, all of which works without the server element installed or running. Here's how the PDF version looked:
