I've just updated  with all break possibilities for the third example  I mentioned in an earlier post .
 http://people.apache.org/~jeremias/fop/KnuthBoxesForTablesWithBorders.pdf  http://people.apache.org/~jeremias/fop/table-border-special1.fo  http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/xmlgraphics-fop-dev/200504.mbox/[EMAIL PROTECTED] I'm now going to refine Simon's work  on borders a little bit further to handle different border widths for individual cells. Hopefully, I can finally start implementing the missing pieces after that.  http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/TableLayout/KnuthElementsForTables/RowBorder I'm a bit concerned about the increasing complexity of this. It takes considerable time just to understand and play through all these examples and after that implementing it so that the code is still readable. Of course, we documented our findings pretty well, although a newbie will surely be totally lost. I just wonder if this is still maintainable. And to make it even worse, I've already documented a known problem  (at the bottom). I just hope it won't bite us later on.  http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/TableLayout/KnuthElementsForTables Jeremias Maerki
