I thought I'd use an empty fo:block to do it...something like: <fo:block indent-before="0.2in"/>One<fo:block indent-before="1in"/>Blue<fo:block indent-before="1in"/>Fish All I want to know is, am I totally barking up the wrong tree? And if so, could you recommend an alternative strategy? I'm willing to do my own leg-work... The most reliable approach will be to use tables to emulate the tabbing.
The problem is handling the second and subsequent tabs--there's no inline object that has the semantic of "position at the next absolute offset from the start edge of the current line area" (at least as far as I know).
