Re: FO: Write vertically
I have a table with a lot of small columns (a dozen of columns with only numbers.) I would like to write the titles of the column vertically (because even single words are too large for each column width.)
reference-orientation isn't supposed to work on table-cell because that construct is only used to group content, not to create any areas itself.
reference-orientation isn't supposed to work on block because that construct creates a normal area not a reference area.
You need to use a block-container to get what you want:
<page-sequence master-reference="frame"> <flow flow-name="frame-body" xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format"> <block>This is a test</block> <table> <table-body> <table-cell><block>Hello</block></table-cell> <table-cell> <block-container reference-orientation="90"> <block>Hello</block> </block-container> </table-cell> <table-cell><block>Hello</block></table-cell> </table-body> </table> </flow> </page-sequence>
I use Fop 0.95. Do I use the wrong property?
I don't have FOP so I cannot answer if it is conformant or not.
I hope this helps.
