Subject: [proposal] text clarification for widows.
Hello TC. In ODF 1.1 I read; (parag 15.5.9 Widows) "Use the fo:widows property to specify the minimum number of lines allowed at the top of a page to avoid paragraph widows." From wikipedia: "In typesetting, a widow occurs when the majority of a paragraph appears on one page with the last line of that paragraph flowing to the top of the following page. Because the entire paragraph did not fit in its entirety on one page, its last line of text was forced to "continue on its own" as a widow on the following page." I'd like to propose a clarification to that paragraph. I'd like to have the following text instead; "Use the fo:widows property to specify the minimum number of lines required after a pagebreak to avoid paragraph widows when the paragraph is split." Changing 'allowed' to 'required' is wanted as the current text makes it really hard to distinguish between widows and orphans. 1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Widow_(typesetting) -- Thomas Zander
