I have encountered a very strange problem when rendering XSL FO to PDF
using RenderX XEP 3.2.2 (and some earlier versions, as well). The
situation is easy enough to describe:
I am writing a large standards document using XML. In that document, I
have a rule (a list element) whose text contains a superscript. Here's an
abstract of that XML:
<item>If <emph>MAX</emph> is equal to 2<super>63</super>-1
(9,223,372,036,854,775,807) and <emph>MIN</emph> is equal to
-2<super>63</super> (-9,223,372,036,854,775,808), then <emph>REST</emph> is:
When that XML is transformed by my XSLT stylesheet into XSL FO, it looks
<fo:list-item id="'generate_id()'" space-before.optimum="8pt"
<fo:block>If <fo:inline font-style="italic">MAX</fo:inline> is equal to
2<fo:inline baseline-shift="super" font-size="smaller">63</fo:inline>-1
(9,223,372,036,854,775,807) and <fo:inline
font-style="italic">MIN</fo:inline> is equal to
-2<fo:inline baseline-shift="super" font-size="smaller">63</fo:inline>
(-9,223,372,036,854,775,808), then <fo:inline
I have attached a larger abstract from the XSL FO to this message, although
I doubt that additional value will be gained from examining that larger
The result of rendering the XSL FO into PDF is a list element in which the
list item label (in this case, "1)") to be raised above the baseline of the
list item body's baseline...in fact, it is raised to the baseline of the
superscripts on the first line of the list item body!
This is demonstrated in the 1-page PDF file that I attached to this message.
Is there something wrong with my XSL FO, or is this a bug (possibly already
reported?) in XEP?
