Subject: RE: [docbook-apps] aligned left-right sidebar


I presume you mean right-aligned text and left-aligned
text.  If so, this is pretty difficult to do automatically.
I had a situation where I wanted to put a vertical bar
to the inside of a sidebar (left on recto and right on
verso). Since I had just a few sidebars to deal with,
I explicitly marked up each one with a role that said
verso or recto and handled the differences explicitly.

The folks at RenderX were good enough to give me some
fo code that would let you make this differentiation
automatically, but I was running up against a deadline
and never put it into production use. It might take a
day or so, but I'd be glad to see if I can round up
that code and send it to you if you are interested.
