I'm using XEP 3.5.4 on WinXP running Pentium 4 / 1.8Ghz / 640Gb RAM with
I'm trying to include a block of text inside a table cell. The text
contains some whitespace and linefeeds which should be preserved, but
longer lines should be wrapped to fit inside the cell. The problem is
that often when XEP breaks a longer line the next line appears to begin
with a space which makes the left margin appear ragged.
Here is the effect; notice the indent preceding "explicitly":
This explanation text tests that line breaks will occur both where they are
explicitly placed and also when a given line of text exceeds available
1) I've currently set the block attributes to
white-space-collapse="false" linefeed-treatment="preserve". (Those are
required to correctly display the source document.)
2) I've tried all combinations of the white-space-tratement attribute
3) It appears to occur only when the soft break occurs within the last 3
characters of the line.
4) Curiously, when I select the text in Acrobat Reader, there is no
leading space; instead the text simply appears to be indented by a
single character. (!?)
5) Below is a test case which replicates the problem. I've replicated
the problem in XEP 2.77 and XEP 3.5.4. Interestingly, I cannot recreate
the problem using Apache FOP 0.20.5.
Is this a known issue? Is there a workaround?
