Orphan/widow and header/footer format issues with FOP
posted 11 years ago
We have recently released an application that uses: Xerces 2.5.1 Xalan 2.5.0 FOP 0.20.5
Our Application Server environment is: WebSphere 4.0.x running on RedHat Linux v7.x
Our users have uncovered some issues with the widow-orphan and header/footer issues. Due to the open source implementation�s lack of compliance I realize that we may have to use a different FOP engine.
I have been doing some research and found a list of alternate FOP implementations that may or may not solve these formatting issues�

While I am looking into the keep-with-[next/previous] properties as well as a few work around examples for the open source implementation of xalan/fop I was curious if any of you have used these, or any other, processors to resolve similar issues.
