excuse me for jumping a bit late into this thread...but we are seriously

Few days ago we hit a problem whne wanting to produce floating image
(wrap text around lef/right-aligned image) and it seems that it's not
possible to do it using neither FOP nor bblatex AsciiDoc backends.

In the reST/Sphinx arena, we came to know that rst2pdf cannot do it as
well (due to limit in Reportlab), which leaves as only with reST/Sphinx.

Otoh, we're able to quickly produce desired effect in LyX which makes us
thing to give up on both AsciiDoc and reST/Sphinx and simply use LyX.

I do not want to say that LyXHTML output is ugly, but we wonder where to
find more info how to customize output to come close to the output
generated by bith AsciiDoc as well as Sphinx?

Moreover, we're curios if LyXHTML can be configured to produce chunked
XHTML output with navigation links?


But for one who takes pleasure in the self, whose human life 
is one of self-realization, and who is satisfied in the self only, 
fully satiated — for him there is no duty.
