Subject Re: Problem spanning across columns
Date Wed, 09 Jul 2014 18:49:20 GMT
Hi all,

I just found a helpful post from the list archives:


... which cites section 7.21.4 of the spec about @span,

  "This only has effect on areas returned by a flow; e.g. block-areas
generated by fo:block children of an fo:flow. Children and further
descendants of these areas take on the spanning characteristic of
their parent."

Moving my two fo:blocks so they're direct children of the fo:flow did
the trick.  Which is great - though it feels a bit kludgy.
