Subject: White space in fo question
I've been playing around with the various white space attributes trying, with no success so far, to achieve the following with fo: Given the following input text (I've replace the space character with '^' to make things clearer): <para> ^^^^Now^is^the^time.^^Here^is^the^place.^^ ^^^^There^is^the^problem.^^Way^out^there ^^^^is^the^solution. <para> I'd like to get the following output using a monospace font (Courier): Now^is^the^time.^^Here^is the^place.^^There^is^the problem.^^Way^out^there^is the^solution. Note that the two spaces between each sentence have been preserved, the text has been wrapped, and the indentation in the source has been ignored. By setting the attribute "white-space-collapse" to false in the "root.properties" attribute set, I get everything I need, except the spaces used to indent the source aren't ignored, which gives output that looks like: Now^is^the^time.^^Here^is the^place.^^^^^^There^is^the problem.^^Way^out^there^^^^^is the^solution. I've tried various values of white-space-treatment to no avail, including ignore-if-after-linefeed, which on paper would seem to be the right choice. I've tried this with FOP 0.93 and XEP 4.4 with the same results, so I think the fop processor is irrelevant. And, I'm using saxon8 with the 1.73.1 stylesheets. Any ideas? Thanks, Dick Hamilton P.S. I know, with proportional fonts, no one puts two spaces after a sentence any more, but I'm using Courier and need that typewriter effect:).
