RE: xsl:fo - keeps and breaks problem..
I'm afraid not, I've got approx 70 odd nodes of the same name that contain varying amounts of information, and in different circumstances, different nodes are pulled in from the db, etc. So I have to build something generic that 'knows' to break if it is approaching the bottom of a page. Essentially, I want to state a rule that says 'if this fo:block cannot be entirely displayed by the end of this page, break and start on a new page'... I assumed that this might be a common requirement, perhaps with paragraphs that you didn't want to split up. E.g. Always do this.. <page> <para></para><!-- template match on para --> <para></para> <para></para> </page> <page> <para></para> <para></para> <para></para> </page> But disallow this under any circumstances... <page> <para></para> <para></para> <para>...... </page> <page> .......</para> <para></para> <para></para> </page> At the end of the day, I'm pleased with the results I've got so far, I'm just being a bit of a perfectionist and it feels like it should be an easy one to crack.. cheers Andy > Part of the problem though is that I'm using one template for all the > results, so I want to be able to add a single attribute to the > fo:block that applies to all situations. Can't you tell from the context in the source XML if its a 'breakable' point? Then add the variant strength? regards DaveP ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail and its attachments are confidential.
