    Seems like 'relative-align' is the answer for the general case. I think
    this would allow me to match the solution I've been using successfully
    in HTML for many years:

    <tr valign="baseline">
    <td>Content with mixed font sizes that wraps to multiple lines.</td>

    Another solution that might work is to support fixed-width inline
    elements. In other words, let me specify a 'width' attribute for
    <fo:inline>. Example:

       <fo:inline width=".5in" text-align="right">1.</fo:inline>Content...

    The XSL specification seems to allow for this, but I'm not 100% sure
    I've interpreted that correctly. If this *is* valid, this would
    actually be more useful than relative-align. And I suspect it would be
    easier to implement :-). I know XEP doesn't currently support this, but
    is this theoretically possible with XSL?
