[xep-support] Re: Keep-with-next oddity

Can you send me a slightly more complete example to test? Send to my email.


Two notes:


This structure <fo:block/> can have an unexpected effect on keeps, it can
break keep logic in the engine. If you can, use
<fo:block><fo:inline/><fo:block> so that it is not flagged for collapse. It
is unclear this is the issue.


Also, should you be more specific in the keep (i.e. not shorthand but
keep-with-next.within-page) Shorthand can lead to unexpected results. I know
this for sure on keep-together. Saying just "keep-together" means all three
".within-page", ".within-column" and ".within-line".

Subject: [xep-support] Keep-with-next oddity


Dear All,


in my itemized list one entry is followed by an image. They are separated by
a space. As I want to color this empty space, I don't use space-before for
the image block, but an extra block-container element.


When the spacer together with the image do not fit to the page, they
overflow to the next one.



When the block-container contains keep-with-next="always" flag, it
influences also preceding block 'Item ###' which overflows as well. There is
no demand for this behaviour anywhere.

When keep-with-next="always" attribute is removed, only spacer and image
overflows, as expected.


<fo:list-item-body start-indent="body-start()">


      <fo:block space-before.optimum="0pt" space-before.minimum="0pt"

         space-before.maximum="2pt" text-indent="0pt">Item ###</fo:block>

      <fo:block-container height="21pt" background-color="#FFFDD0"
keep-with-previous="auto" keep-with-next="always">



      <fo:block font-size="0pt" border-top="0.5pt solid red"

         border-bottom="0.5pt solid red" text-align="center">

         <fo:external-graphic src="url(Images/Image.png)"

            border="0.5pt solid orange" content-height="5cm"

            content-width="100%" height="100%"/>





I am just curious is this behaviour is correct or not.


Thanks, Jan
