An fo:block is as big as its content gets -- if there's nothing in it, it will be infinitely tiny and there is not much point in
having multiple zero-height line breaks...
How about:
<xsl:template match="RETURN">
<fo:block>&#160;</fo:block><!-- non-breaking space -->

	Hi everyone,
	2 questions regarding text blocks:
	1) How can I implement multiple enters in a text block? A single enter (carriage return, line feed) is easy using
	 <xsl:template match="RETURN">
	but this doesn't produce an enter if the text starts with <RETURN/>. Also: multiple <RETURN/>'s reduce to only one enter
using this method, how can this be solved?
	2) I wrote a VB 6.0 application that uses (resizeable and moveable) text boxes to let the user enter custom text. This text
box (the text itself, top, left, width, height, size, font, color, emphasis and horizontal alignment properties) is transformed into
XML (TEXT element with LEFT, TOP, WIDTH, HEIGHT, SIZE, FONT, COLOR, EMPH and HALIGN attributes) and rendered using XEP. It works
fine (the transformation is correct), but there appears to be a slight difference in text positioning (inside the box/block) between
VB text boxes and RenderX text blocks. For a rather large font size, this difference can be more than 2 mm and is really
unacceptable. Is there perhaps somebody who knows how to eliminate (or at least reduce) this effect in an easy way?
	Any help would be greatly appreciated.
	Stijn Elst.
