The text in 7.24.15 is in error (even the names of the FOs it lists as
applying to no longer exist...) and will be corrected. The property only
applies to the region-before and region-after.

Subject:  Follow-up on region precedence



Hi, all

I have been staring at the XSL spec on screen a bit too much, and the
little
words are blurring togther. :-) In any case, when I read the section on
regions (6.4.14-17) a few days ago, I managed to convince myself that
region-start and region-end also have a "precedence", based on section
7.24.15, which states that all 4 outer regions _do_ have a "precedence"
property.

I have since discussed this with others, and I am quite certain that
7.24.15
is completely in error. Once it is dismissed, and only 6.4.14-17 are taken
into account, then a much more consistent picture emerges. FOP happens to
follow what is presumably the correct interpretation, and I believe other
implementations do, too. I guess at the time of writing code everybody
ignored the property description. :-) I wrote a chunk of that code myself,
but I can't remember... Just as well.

It would be useful to have a pronouncement on the property description,
just
so we know for sure that it's out to lunch. In any case, please ignore my
diagram in the previous email - it is based on 7.24.15.

Regards,
Arved Sandstrom
