Subject: Re: [office] Paragraph Alignment


First, quick apology, won't be able to make the call this morning. Sorry 
'bout that.

Proposal for extension of fo:text-align attribute looks good to me.

Assuming that not including "end" is limited to paragraph? (Agree that 
with paragraph it does not look like it would be useful, probably more 
accurate to say I can't think of a use case. Not saying one does not 
exist but one does not come to mind.)

Hope you are having a great day!
