The requirements include some specific to columns , though it doesn't specifically mention the column separator. The XSL FO Subgroup is erring on the side of "publish early, publish often", but there is not yet anything about columns in the current Working Draft at http://www.w3.org/TR/xslfo20/ (which I announced to this list today). I won't speculate on whether columns will make it into the next WD or when that will be. In the interim, you are welcome to make a Bugzilla entry about columns and column separators: every chance it gets, the XSL FO Subgroup asks for public feedback on the requirements and the WD. > There are a couple work arounds like using a background image and also > this method described on the XEP support list: > http://services.renderx.com/lists/xep-support/2202.html A XSL 1.1 workaround/hack might be to use change bars, though you might end up with an unwanted bar in one of the page margins. > What is the proper way to request an enhancement to the spec?
