...Irrespective of what format the document is I would like to have some specific information in a block which I would like to place somewhere on the page. In short I want to specify absolute position for the fo:block-container I will be using.
The problem is that this block-container is placed over some content i.e. the content is hidden behind this container. What I want is that the remaining content should flow into the areas outside the container.
I think what you want cannot be easily done with XSLFO. You can use side floats to create text floating around something else, but I don't think you can position floats at absolute coordinates on a page.
I saw a property called intrusion-displace.
That's for floats. I don't think it can be leveraged to solve your problem.
Is FOP compliant
with this property?
