Am using fop 0.20.4 and am having trouble with the following xml. The table is not being rendered at all. However if I remove the TABLE parent P it renders fine. Is this a bug or am I missing something. I also tried putting the template rules for P and TABLE as a for-each rule within the RECORDITEM template with no success.
The correct approach is to run the XSL transformation separately and examine the resulting FO document whether the table is actually there. If not, it's the transformation. If the table is there and has the expected data in it, it's either a problem with the FO or a bug in FOP.
Possible problems: - Your XML source generates two cells per row, the table however has 4 columns declared. - The table is nested into block with margins and text-indents, which are cumulated and inherited to the table cells, thereby shifting text off the cells. - It may be possible that you have a FOP version which does not like mixed text and blocks. Altough this is alloowed by the spec, FOP behaves sometimes a bit unpreditably. Try to use <xsl:apply-templates select="*"/> in the template for RECORDITEM to test for this.
