I need to make a line break if the width exceeds a given value and for that
I've added the max-width-attribute to a block. However, I need a little more
control to this line break, I need to break at a special character. As an
example, look at this:

I have a email and when it exceeds 40 mm, I want to break it at the @ like


Is it possible to do with XSLT/XSL-FO or do I need to write an extension
(hope not). This is how I want to do

<fo:block max-width="40mm" break-char="@"><xsl:value-of
