It's been a while since my last post so hello everyone. I may have a project that will need to be done in both formats and am wondering what the best workflow should be. It will be shot on an XL2 in NTSC, Edited in FCP 4.5 and Authored on DVDSP 3.0.2. So My guess is that I can export from FCP as PAL and burn the DVD as a PAL just like I would if it was NTSC. That will allow me to edit only once and DVD Build twice. Pros??? Cons??? And any other advice is most appreciated.

I don't think you can get a decent NTSC to PAL conversion with your software. The new version of Compressor is supposed to do it (although very slow).

Take a look at Graeme's standards conversion FCP plugin: http://www.nattress.com/standardsConversion.htm

or for a standalone application there's DVFilm Atlantis: http://www.dvfilm.com/atlantis/

Both have free demos.
