FO: position absolute
Reading the WD of April : 5.2.1 position .... absolute: the box position (and possibly size) is specified with the "left", "right", "top", and "bottom" properties. These properties specify offsets with respect to the box's containing block. Absolutely positioned boxes are taken out of the normal flow ............. 22.214.171.124 Description Reference to CSS2: position property My questions are: How can I think to compare the position property of the XSL (paginated layout) with the same one of the CSS (unpaginated layout) ? Could I define some thing like so: <fo:block position="absolute" top="40 cm" left="5 cm"> </fo:block> ? If yes, I'm positiong something in absolute manner in the second page (for me a page now is 27 cm heigth and 21cm large). Is this possible ? If the replay is yes, I'm happy, if no I couldn't understand how this property works. Another thing: why I can't define the dimension of a block ? I can do this with CSS. I think is a usefull feature. For me and my goals is absolutely necessary (and I think not only for me). For now It's enough. The doubts are severals. I hope that at least all the feature of the CSS must be supported by XSL. And I think that if we want a 'language' that really can express how to render a document, several changes and new features have to append to the actual WD. Regards.
