Re: Footnote within a list item
My footnote is constructed like this:
Long ago I put this explicitly in one of our XSL-FO class exercises in order to force students to look at tree refinement in the XSL-FO processing model. It always catches them by surprise when they think they've completed the exercise.
Before your footnote is laid out on the page, the refinement of the FO tree runs all the necessary inheritance processing and FO clean-up. This means that while your footnote is inside your body's block in the tree, it is inheriting your body's indentation. When it is laid out at the bottom of the page it has already inherited the indentation and so it gets used.
I tell my students that to isolate the indentation of the footnote from the indentation of the body, wrap the footnote-body content with an unindented block:
<footnote-body> <block start-indent="0pt"> .... </block> </footnote-body>
The behaviour you are seeing is not a bug ... it is a direct result of the kinds of actions that are going on in the XSL-FO processing model, and what you end up getting in the refined FO object tree.
I hope this helps.
