    At the point where you want to span 2 columns add

    <fo:block span="all"> {your table information} </fo:block>

    This will span all the columns set in simple-page-master for all content
    nested within the fo:block node. (you can specify a number instead of
    "all" if you wish)

    Subject: [xep-support] Double column to single column switch

    I'm trying to implement a format where the main text is formatted in
    two-columns, portrait on an A4 page which then has tables throughout
    which are a whole page width (single column). Can anyone point me in the
    direction of the best way to do this using XSL + XML -> PDF


    Thank you.
