Re: How to Create Side Heads in XSL-FO

For example, I need to format a chapter title on a page where the body text is indented to 72pts creating an offset column layout. The chapter number is left justified against the page edge (left margin) and the title text is in the offset column.
In retrospect, I would definitely use either a list or table instead of inlining a container because you don't necessarily know the title will fit on a single line. If the title wraps, you need it to wrap at your indent location rather than the left margin, which would happen if you had just used a container in a block for your chapter number.

I'm just starting out trying to create a production FO style and I'm somewhat stymied by how to create "side heads" (a search in the archives on "side head" returned no hits).
The appropriate XSLFO terminology would be "start float" or "a float on the start side of the flow". But I don't think any vendor implements this yet.
