Actually I have the opposite problem. I'm too having some long words inside a
table cell, but since my table-columns have a fixed width I would like to
have the content of the cell to be truncated in the case of a "long word".
What I did was to use <fo:table-cell wrap-option="no-wrap"> to dissallow the
cell's contents to be wrapped. But what FOP did was to "shrink" enough the
"gap" between each character so the "long word" could fit in the block area
within the cell.
I was unable to locate any hint in the list's archives, therefore I'm asking..
if it's possible to truncate the cell's contents to a specific and fixed
width size ? (ex: If the cell's content would be normaly "Filippos Slavik",
but the font-size and/or the cell width is not big enough to hold the entire
string, I would like a "Filippos Sla" string to appear in the generated PDF
The XSLFO specification provides the wrap-option and the
overflow property to control this. Unfortunately, FOP
doesn't yet implement the overflow="hidden" setting.
You can try to clip long content at the XSLT level,
or whatever matches your problem. Catering for proportional
fonts will take a bit of work.
