Yes, it is possible. See Luca's Wiki page on LayoutExtensions, http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/LayoutExtensions, section 'Elastic paragraphs'. That is why a LineLM creates a LayoutPossibilities list, which currently always contains only one LayoutPossibility. > + * orphans/widows properties; but contrary to TeX, in XSL-FO it is only > possible to define the number of orphans/widows, not a penalty associated to > them. In my opinion this is user agent dependent, and therefore FOP can make it user configurable in a configuration file. The same is true of the other parameters of the line and page breaking algorithms. > + * BTW, is there in XSL-FO a way of determining if the document is single- > or double-sided? At best one can check if there are separate page masters in use for odd and even pages. Regards, Simon -- Simon Pepping home page: http://www.leverkruid.eu
