Re: end-of-sentence full stop in XSL:FO?
Can you explain why you need to make this distinction? [...]
As far as I know there is no FO-defined way to indicate the end of a sentence. I would expect any good FO implementation to do this automatically.
What FO engine are you using?
Per the other response to this thread, you could always detect the sentence breaks yourself and either insert the appropriate absolute space characters (say using a SAX filter on the input to the XSLT process) or generate a space leader with the appropriate spacing. The only issue there is that would tend to disallow breaking of lines at sentence boundaries, so that might not work.
Really, this is a function of the renderer implementation and not something that the creator of the FO data should have to worry about, just like hyphenation or kerning or other aspects of line composition.
