Subject Re: fo:page-number spacing problems in Arabic
Date Wed, 28 Nov 2012 08:49:38 GMT
Hi,

there are some issues related to page-number-citation in right-to-left
mode in conjunction with align right.
See [1].

> * The entire string is shifted to the left and doesn't right-align.
> * On page 10, the page number shows "01" (reversed).
> * On page 12, both the page number and the total show "21" (reversed).

> The orange box denotes where fo:leader elements (forced spacing) were
