    Well, I'm afraid you are out of luck then ... as I was trying to say above,
    you cannot clip the inline-progression-dimension of a line, you can only
    clip the block-progression-dimension of a block.

    Make sure the XSL-FO designers know at what your
    real-world requirements are so that they can contemplate future changes to
    the specification.
