I am constructing a simple table as below in XSL-FO.
If you observe I am putting value in 2nd column as
<xsl:value-of select="." /> using XSLT. It works fine
as told by you, but I have found it fails in 1 case.
When the string length of <xsl:value-of select="." />
(i.e. of the data element) is greater than the column
width i.e. 108 pt, that word is not split and brought
to next line, but it overflows the column boundary. I
need that a long word whose length is greater than the
column width should be split at the column boundary(as
it happens in MS Word). Is there any property in
XSL-FO for this, or am I missing something..
<fo:block><xsl:value-of select="." /></fo:block>

typed in a table row, I need 2 conditions to be
1) When a word touches the column boundary , the
word wraps to the next line(the word is not split)
This is normal behavior unless you explicitly turn
off line breaking.
2) If length of word is greater than the column
the word is split and continues on the next line
You will have to turn on hyphenation and probably
hyphentation character (if you don't actually want a
hyphen when a word
Different implementations may behave differently
when flowing text into
constrained spaces--XEP, for example, never breaks
hyphentation is on, XSL Formatter may. The FO
specification leaves these
details of line breaking up to implementations.
