Well, there is no special means for such a flow control in XSL FO.
That kind of effect you want to achieve? I think the only thing that
probably could be of some use is a "keep-together.within-column"
property. If you have <fo:block> with keep-together.within-column="always"
constraint then it will be always moved to the next column if current
one has not enough space to accommodate all of it's contents.
MB> 2. How can I force a rowbreak, comparable to HTML <br>?
This kind of abstraction is not directly applicable to XSL FO. The
best (and natural for XSL FO) way to separate paragraphs of text is to
wrap them in <fo:block> elements. In this case every paragraph will
start from a new line. If you just want to add some spacing between
text blocks consider use of space-before/after properties.
The most "brutal" way to "emulate" HTML <br> is to use a construction
like this one:
This is a non-empty but invisible block, which will force following
text to start from a new line.
Hope this helps.
