Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Inline media object/text overlapping on PDF output

Hi Claudio,

I think there are some ways to test in the DocBook document:
First you can decrease your image (per docbook attributes or the image
Second you can increase the line space for this paragraph.
Or you can surround your inline graphic with
<superscript>..</superscript> to rise the vertical middle level.

In XSLFO you can use the "baseline-shift" attribute to rise the
vertical middle level.

Good luck
