Subject Re: right align arabic in table-cell
Date Wed, 19 Mar 2014 23:44:10 GMT
Hi Glenn

Thanks very much for that.

So the following should right align in the table cell?

            <table-cell  xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">

              <block-container writing-mode="rl-tb">
                <block>
                  <inline>المدينة</inline>
                </block>
              </block-container>
            <table-cell>

But  that didn't work in FOP 1.1 nor with
http://ci.apache.org/projects/xmlgraphics/fop/snapshots/fop-20140319.jar

(Refer May 2011 thread "Complex Script, BIDI text supported?")

cheers .. Jason
