Re: Two columns page
Hi all !!
XSL Formatter 2.5 (www.antennahouse.com) includes a proprietary extension to produce a variety of rules for columns.
To do this with an unused region (for example, region-end), you make the extent of the region-end such that it will overlap the part of the page where the rule should be. You can then use any number of different formatting objects to product the rule, including, for example, a block-container with a single border or a rotated leader with a fixed length.
The key to this is remembering that the different page regions can overlap.
If you need to control whether or not the rule appears on different pages within the same page sequence, you can use markers to hold the flow objects that actually produce the rule and then set the markers as needed as you change the number of columns. Unfortunately, I don't think there's a way to make this work if you change the column spanning in the middle of a page and you can't predict exactly where on the page that change will occur.
