RE: [xml-dev] FOP

Hi Jörg,

First take a look at the proposed recommendation http://www.w3.org/TR/xsl/
and there you can find everything about the table object
Another usefull url is http://zvon.org/xxl/xslfoReference/Output/index.html
and the folks of RenderX have even made a XSL-FO DTD

Then you have to look if and how the rendering engines support this XSL-FO
The latest version of Fop is 0.20.1 and it supports the xsl:fo candidate
release but Fop is at the moment not a full implementation of the basic
conformance level of the xsl:fo standard. You can find a list of all the
supported flow objects and properties in the section
http://xml.apache.org/fop/implemented.html) has problems with the rendering
of tables conform the proposed rec. The following objects are implemented:
'table', 'table-body', 'table-cell', 'table-column', 'table-footer',
'table-header' and 'table-row'. There is no support for 'table-and-caption'
and 'table-caption'. Further on there are two limitations: FOP needs you to
explicitly specify column widths and cells have to contain block-level FOs.
They can't contain straight character data. For more details

For XSL-FO questions you can always use following lists:

1. An XSL List: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list/index.html
2. An XSL-FO list: the w3c xls-fo list
3. Another XSL-FO list: the xsl-fo list at yahoo groups

I hope this helps you further.
Best Regards,

Hello everybody,
I would like to know from which version FOP is able to show borders, handle
proportional column width (TCOLSPEC colname="xy" colwidth="3*" /is this the
correct syntax?) and fo:table width=15cm" (the attribute width).
