Hi,
I need to convert the AFP to PDF. AFP format is in binary format. Currently i am first conerting AFP to XML and then to XML to PDF.
But in this method some overlapping is occuring. So what is the best method and how to do that?
Best method in the accuracy,performance.

    XSLT and XSL-FO should help. They can get xml data to PDF. I don't know about AFP though.
    If you can strip this info out using a text/hex editor, you should be able to strip what you want and make it into an xml doc for xsl-fo processing.
    This looks interesting http://www.snowbound.com/image_conversion/afp_to_pdf.html
    Apparently these guys www.targetstream.com offer a .net tool.
