Dear all,

I would need to convert XML to something that has a fixed page layout
ready to print, like ODT/OOXML or PDF.

After looking at your XML, probably CSS with something like paged.js or
Vivliostyle's offering would work for you and you'd have at least basic
output very quickly, without having to buy products.

But you'd still end up editing some CSS and you might end up using
either JavaScript of XSLT to turn your styles/column markup into CSS
column-count: 2 (or whatever). Going to ODT is more complex and will
likely involve more XSLT, but also doable.
