  • Hi Alberto,

    If you haven't already, you might want to take a look at a book like XSL-FO. This book has some online examples that might be useful to you, you can find them at http://www.dpawson.co.uk/xsl/examples.html

    You might also want to take a look at the W3C XSL-FO Tutorial. It looks like you can set background colors using the background-color property and I think you may be able to create columns using the column-count property on the region-body object.

    This forum is for O'Reilly customer service, so if you have more technical question that aren't related to our books, you can post them on our community knowledge sharing site, O'Reilly Answers, or another technical forum like Stack Overflow.

    I hope this helps!

  • Hi, Rachel
    I already have the XSL-FO book.
    But for what I need there is not examples.

    I've take a look on the links that you suggested me, but I do not found what I need.

    The background-color is not what I want, the color that I used on my docs it will only be used to explain the two flows that I have to insert into the document.
    I hope I've explained it well :-D

    I'm able to create the columns with column-count, what I'm not able is to insert the white or blank (choose the meaning that you prefer) space that I have to put on top of the 2nd 3rd and 4th column. Take another look at the document https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Y...

    What I really need is how to place that blank space.
    Do you have a solution?

    I would appreciate if you have a solution for me! :-D

    Thanks in advance!

  • Hi Alberto,

    I think you could find some more expert advice on the mailing list at http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list/.

    Sorry I couldn't be more help, but I hope that you'll be able to get some answers there.

    Regards,

    Hi Alberto,

    I think, you want to create a multicolumn-article and you want to create a free space inside this article, may be for a picture or something else.
    As far as I know, this is not possible with XSL-FO.
    Even with a fo:float element this is not possible.
    I am sorry, but some time ago, I had the same problem and up to now there is no solution.

    regards
