Re:  [XSL-FO] right alignment after leader dots (multip
Hi Tony,

Thanks for looking into this
I have attached a full working example

The first leader and the space before the number, I added because without them FOP pushes the dot leader to the next line, giving me a full line of dots

About your second cell suggestion...
I have a variant that does exactly that, but what I need then to happen is a fill out to end of cell boundary with leader dots
The only way I know of to get there is to add an invisible character.
It is a lot nicer (because the numbers are aligned correctly) but I can not get to align the ending of the dots.
Problem is the same, the one cell variant is more obvious, so I decided to share that variant

Met vriendelijke groeten, 
Best regards, 

Geert Bormans

Sorry, but can you include more of your XSL-FO markup?  Like Kevin, I
can format your sample with FOP 2.6 and not reproduce your problem.

Actually, I don't see the 1mm leader with AH Formatter.  The effect can
be achieved with both AH Formatter and FOP by dropping the 1mm leader
and adding 'padding-left="1mm"' to the remaining fo:leader.  However, I
also don't see it in your FOP screenshot.

A possible alternative is to simulate a second table cell with the text
pushed to the bottom by using a second table cell with the text pushed
to the bottom:

<fo:table-cell padding-bottom="5mm" keep-together.within-page="always" 

     <fo:block keep-together.within-page="always"
         Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. 
Suspendisse sodales tincidunt sapien. Orci varius natoque penatibus et 
magnis dis parturient montes, nascetur ridiculus mus. Phasellus quis 
auctor diam.<fo:leader padding-left="1mm"
<fo:table-cell padding-bottom="5mm" keep-together.within-page="always" 

     column-number="3" display-align="after">
     <fo:block><fo:inline keep-together.within-line="always"
                     font-weight="bold"> 2006</fo:inline></fo:block>

In your screenshot, the following column seems to use
display-align="after" as well.  Is there some reason for not using a
column for the numbers?
