I'm trying to lay out a page which will eventually become a title page for
some other documents.

One feature I want to achieve is a box containing two lines of text, one at
the top and one at the bottom.

A bit like this :



+----------

|   first line

|

|

|

|   second line

+---------



I've been advised that I can do this using display-align="after" in a
block-container.

I can get the bounding box using a block-container, but I only seem to get the
two lines together, either at the top or the bottom.



If I use display-align="before",

ie something like :

  <fo:block-container  absolute-position="fixed"  right="2mm" left="25mm"
top="30mm" bottom="200mm" display-align="before"  >

      <fo:block  >
  first line
      </fo:block>
      <fo:block  >
  second line
      </fo:block>
  </fo:block-container >

(I've removed everything apart from the alignments - there are actually
absolute position attributes and a few others)



I get:



+----------

|   first line

|   second line

|

|

|

+---------



If I use the same but display-align="after", I get :

+----------

|

|

|

|   first line

|   second line

+---------



The description of display-align="after" says "The after-edge of the
allocation-rectangle of the last child area is placed coincident with the
after-edge of the content-rectangle of the reference-area."  It doesn't say
anything about the non-last child areas (ie "first line") so I expected these
to be at the top of the block-container, with just the last one being at the
bottom.



Am I missing something ?  Misunderstanding ?

Any suggestions how to get this to work ?





Regards,

Richard.
