When that answer went into the FAQ it was the generally held opinion that all you
needed to do was swap the values for width and height and taddah - landscape mode.

However more recently I saw there was some comment about actual fields you need to 

http://www.OWAL.co.uk:8090/asf/fop.jsp   has an interactive FAQ you can search and add to.

It also mentions the mailing list archives at




will search for mentions of landscape.

This helped me find the answer:

The reference-orientation probably needs to be 90 as in ninety degrees of rotation.

But it also tells me this didn't work for everybody - some versions of FOP don't 
seem understand the reference-orientation tag


Remember to check the FAQ - otherwise I will be rather upset I bothered to set it up.

(Of course remember that the FAQ can be used to create proper documentation as 
done by Fotis later on so add any useful info you have)
