Subject Re: Placing Copyright notice on SigPlan without using float?
Date Wed, 05 Feb 2014 10:48:09 GMT

IIUC, you want to have the copyright block only at the bottom of the
1st column of the 1st page.
AFAIK, there is no FO solution for that; in one page, all columns will
have same height (at least regarding XSL-FO REC 1.1).
That said, you can easily change the 1st page body, , and put your
copyright cartouche in a static region of the 1st page (in absolute
position, if you want).

If your requirement is to change the only 1st page/1st column height,
the only solution I can imagine is:
 - add a space before to the 1st fo:block,
 - and tweak the FOP intermediate format (see [1]) to move up the 1st
column area.

Note that there is an open issue when using footnote in multicolumn (see [2]).
