I'm using xml and stx joost transformation to generate pdf document. The problem I have is that all new lines in text (ok in xml) are replaced with spaces. Is any way to specify in stx to keep those new lines?
Thanks

After looking up "joost" to see what it was, I see that it doesn't produce PDF itself. Instead it produces something which can be used by an XSL-FO transformer to produce the PDF.

So my suggestion would be to start this way: investigate and find out which of these steps is causing your problem.

Thank you for replying Paul.

Code for pdf generation


I tried to add <stx:attribute name="linefeed-treatment">preserve</stx:attribute> to my fo:block elements in stx file, but there is no difference. Maybe you could suggest any other ideas?
As I understand the xsl-fo is contacted and then transformed to pdf (line 2). Correct me if it is wrong.
