    Hello Oliver,

    OB> Hi Alexander,

    Well, may be, but you have no choice anyway :-)

    OB> line 3</pre>
    OB> into a sequence of floats, one per line ... (ouch!)

    I think XSLT chunking is a reasonable approach, but personally I would
    prefer to create bigger chunks, not one line long.

    OB> PS: your example fo has a border="thin solid green" on fo:float, but
    OB> the result doesn't show any border.

    This is just a mistype. I have accidently added it during debugging.
    And float has no border according to XSL FO spec so it shouldn't be printed.
    Note that you still can specify border-* properties on fo:float in
    case you want to retrieve their values on the float descendants using
    "from-parent()" function.

    Best regards,
