thats right. fo:inline is not properly implemented in FOP. It should 
create its own area, but is implemented to be the same as fo:wrapper, 
i.e. just a holder for different attributes.

You may be able to acheive what you want using tables, but only if you 
know exactly how much text is in the relevant parts, i.e. "ABCD", "EFGH" 
and "IJKL", so you can set column widths.
