You have already been told that the FO equivalent of HTML <p>Stuff<br>more stuff</p> is preferably <fo:block> <fo:block>Stuff</fo:block> <fo:block>more stuff</fo:block> </fo:block> You asked also how to get from something resembling the first to the second. This is easy if the <br/> is a immediate child of the <p>, one solution is <xsl:template match="p"> <fo:block> <fo:block> <xsl:apply-templates select="node()[not(previous-sibling::br)]"/> </fo:block> <xsl:for-each select="br"> <fo:block> <xsl:apply-templates select="following-sibling::node() [generate-id(previous-sibling::br)=generate-id(current())]"/> </fo:block> </xsl:for-each> </fo:block> </xsl:template> (untested) or you can handle it as a more general grouping problem, see the XSLT FAQ. If the <br/> could be nested, for example <p><em>Important Stuff<br/>more important stuff</em></p> i can only think of a multipass solution which pulls up the <br/> to direct child level, thereby splitting all elements it contains. (Not recommended hack: use disable-output-escaping to generate "lone" tags) If the above becomes unpracticable, you can have the FO processor honor linefeed by setting the linefeed-treatment property to preserve. (http://www.w3.org/TR/xsl/slice7.html#linefeed-treatment) That's more of a kludge and may give unexpected results in some contexts, but you might get a cheap shot. Inserting dummy blocks <xsl:template match="br"> <fo:block/> </xsl:template> (perhaps with some modifications) might also be a cheap if brittle solution in you concrete case.
