I think so. There seems to be an unarchitected mechanism  to extend the field length but the spec says its use is discouraged.  MO:DCA spec, Eighth Edition, "Structured Field Syntax", SFI semantics, Bytes 6-7, page 21/22. > 2. Do we need to warn the user in this case? If the truncated part is not just whitespace, then yes, IMO. > Please point me to the code points and guide me to resolve this problem, if > you can... org.apache.fop.afp.modca.TagLogicalElement, line 128. Simply check if the value is longer than allowed and then check if the truncated part contains anything other than spaces. > Thanks, > Venkat. Jeremias Maerki
