Subject: Re: [docbook-apps] Carriage Return/Line Feed within informaltable cells on PDF

That's a lot simpler than the way I had done it in the past.  Thanks.

It's very easy to put in an extra fo block to act as a line break

Does this help?


I have personally never been able to get any kind of line breaks to work by attempting to insert them into a source file.

Instead, I have had to do things with a customization layer in XSLT, to produce separate fo:block elements to break lines.

I can post an example if you'd like, but in the meantime I'd like to know if anyone else has a better solution.

I am new here and especially new with using Docbook. I want to create
Reports with results of softwaretests.
I used an informaltable. Within the tablecells I have text with includes a
char(10) --> Carriage return.
The PDF result ignores these CR/LF.
Does someone know to solve this? I can also transform the chr(10) to an
other character before converting.
