    Hello Arjan,

    You have two options to achieve desired effect:
    1. Explicitly specify zero indents (start-indent="0pt" and
       end-indent="0pt") on fo:table-body element.
    2. Set XEP2_COMPATIBLE_MODE to 'true' to enforce RenderX proprietary
       interpretation of inheritance. However we consider this option as
       deprecated and discourage its use.

    Best regards,
    Alexander Peshkov
    AL> Dear reader,
    AL> Below I have added a simple XML FO document which places a table in list-item-body.
    AL> I want the 'C' character to be positioned just below the 'B' character, as C is the text content of the first cell of the table, which is left aligned.
    AL> I do not seem able to do this.
    AL> Note that, generally, I want all tables and all other block level constructs not to inherit the value of the start-indent= attribute. So I do not want to introduce a start-indent= attribute on
    AL> blocks in cell contents...
    AL> Can you help me out?
