Searching good XSL-FO (formatting objects) tutorial for converting XML->PDF

I would like to learn some XSLT-FO handling procedures and need a good tutorial.

Unfortunately most of the links in Google refer to books, lessons, XML syntax

What I need is an easy step-by-step guide for installing and applying all necessary tools
for converting a simple lets say "Hello world" XML doc into pdf with XSL-FO

Does someone know such a quick start guide ?

Try looking for a tutorial for using Apache's "fop"? (Actually, I'd
expect it comes with a simple hello-world sort of example...)

Hello Harry,

I would recommend this XLS tutorial to learn common syntax.

Then, it depends, what rendering tools you are going to use.
For example, for XEP Rendering Engine (www.renderx.com) you can read more
