Subject: Re: [docbook] keep together results in exception

Hi Karsten,
Docbook's default settings are chosen based on what the stylesheets 
author's think would best serve the most users.  Keeping the titled blocks 
(figure, examples, table) together is a common practice and generally good 
for the reader.  But as you noticed, it is not possible for the defaults to 
satisfy everyone, so the stylesheets are designed to be customized, and are 
expected to be customized.

It is unlikely that we will set the defaults to accomodate an unfinished FO 
processor, when there may be a workaround that can be used until it is 
finished.  Have you tried turning off the automatic keeps for formal 
objects with something like this:

<xsl:attribute-set name="formal.object.properties">
  <xsl:attribute name="keep-together.within-column">auto</xsl:attribute>
