New line breaking algorithm





------- Additional Comments From spepping@leverkruid.nl  2004-08-31 18:44 -------
Luca,

Thanks for the new patch. I could apply it without problems, and
testing it goes well.

You mention that you have not implemented the Knuth algorithm for
ContentLM. Would it be difficult to do that?

FOP team,

If I would apply this patch, we would get the following regressions:

- ContentLM does not show its content. A leader with
  leader-pattern="use-content" results in a blank area of the right
  size.

- When for an exceptionally difficult paragraph no set of breaking
  points can be found, the whole paragraph is printed on a single
  line. This occurs, for example, when in a narrow typesetting width
  only a single word or a part of it fits in a line.

I am working towards applying this patch despite these
regressions, for these reasons:

- This patch is a good piece of work, and a step forward for FOP's
  layout.

- It becomes increasingly hard to maintain this patch outside of CVS.

Please, speak up if you are against this.

Simon
