Andreas L. Delmelle commented on FOP-2574:
------------------------------------------


*scratches head* 
After looking at the sample rendered in HTML, I must admit that that does looks 
a bit unexpected... 
Still, all browsers I tried, rendered it exactly the same way. The CSS spec -- 
and by extension also XSL-FO -- does state that the alignment is not with 
respect to the viewport, though, so not sure if that means we are implementing 
it wrongly ( ? )

That said, suppose one adds one line above that just contains the string 'AAA', 
you would end up with a right-aligned first line and a second line that 
_appears_ to be left-aligned ( ? )

Example in HTML:
{code:language=html}
  <div style="width: 70px; text-align: right; white-space:nowrap; display: 
block; overflow: hidden; border: 1px solid #323232;">AAA<br>Lorem ipsum 
oposum!</div>
{code}

If that is the intended rendering, it can be obtained via FOP by means of a 
nested fo:block-container. Note that "text-align" is an inherited property, so 
can be set at the level of the outer fo:block-container, and then overridden on 
an inner fo:block-container.

Example rendering similarly in XSL-FO:
{code:language=xml}
  <fo:block-container text-align="right" border-color="black" 
border-style="solid" border-width="1pt" overflow="hidden" width="70px" 
white-space="nowrap">
    <fo:block>AAA</fo:block>
    <fo:block-container text-align="left"><fo:block>Lorem ipsum 
oposum!</fo:block></fo:block-container>
  </fo:block-container>
{code}

> Right alignment doesn't work correctly
