Re: FO: block, padding and border

Sorry, I misinterpreted your original post that you were putting these un-bordered blocks inside of bordered table cells because of your citation of tables.
When you are just using blocks outside of cells, the block with the border has a block inside with the content:
<fo:block border="solid 0.5pt"> <fo:block space-before="5pt" start-indent="5pt" space-after="5pt" end-indent="5pt"> bla... bla...
Thanks to Vasu, I found the following that solves my problem:
Fine ... but I insist padding is not the "clean way" to do it. And if you get in the habit of using it you'll have issues with background.
And Vasu's use of padding-left= does not make for a portable stylesheet in case the writing direction should change.
And Vasu is attributing an inline area instead of a block area and I think it more appropriate to attribute the block area.
I use FOP 0.95, not sure this has something to do...
I don't have that installed, but my code fragment above works with the processors I'm using.
