Where did you find such a suggestion? I'd be interested to know if there's a hint in this direction in the spec. I thought it was up to the implementation to decide the strategy.
I think the way we're now taking in our discussion suggests that we're not going to do a first-fit strategy at all. If we're really going down the two-strategy path we'll probably end up with a best-fit strategy and a total-fit or best-fit plus look-ahead. (See Simon's list ) But that's something we still need to figure out together.  http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/PageLayout On 02.03.2005 14:48:17 Glen Mazza wrote: > Just a sanity check here, the XSL specification seems > to suggest always the first-fit strategy for page > breaking *except* where keeps are explicitly > specified.
