Layer in PDF output

PDF layer can be specified by axf:layer-settings and axf:layer. Specify the layer setting like axf:layer-settings="layer1,layer2" in fo:root and specifies in which layer the area is specified like axf:layer="layer1". The features which can be specified are view, print, export, locked and lang. The initial state of on/off can be specified to view, print and export. locked locks a layer. lang specifies a language. The layer settings are effective only with PDF 1.5 or later. In this sample, <axf:document-info name="pagemode" value="UseOC" /> is specified so that the layer pannel can be shown when opening the document.
