Subject: Re: [docbook] para and figure alignment

There is no way to indicate such a feature in DocBook element markup, because that is a formatting issue.  However, the DocBook XSL stylesheets support a "keep-together" feature on para using a processing-instruction.  So if you are willing to put the figure inside the para with the text of the para, this should work:
<para><?dbfo  keep-together="always" ?>Text of the paragraph.
This will wrap the text and the figure in an fo:block with a keep-together.within-column="always" property, which should keep them on the same page.

Subject: [docbook] para and figure alignment

Dear people
In some cases, if a figure is directly shown after an short para, the figure is shown on the next page (pdf output). In this case i want show this figure together with the para on the next page. Is there a solution in docbook to solve this problem?
