           Summary: 5.2.1 "last-line-minimum-deficit"
           Product: XSLFO
           Version: 2.0 Working Draft
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSL-FO
        AssignedTo: Tony.Graham@MenteithConsulting.com
        ReportedBy: dave.pawson@gmail.com

"The last-line-minimum-deficit property specifies a length (x) for the minimum
line length deficit for the last line-area of a block-area. More precisely, it
specifies a constraint on the last line-area child of the last block-area L
generated and returned by the formatting object, such that the inline L is
either equal to the available width (w) in the inline-dimension (as the term is
used in the "justify" value of "text-align"), or is less than or equal to w
minus x."

Above contains 'block-area L' and 'inline L'
which is confusing.

I find the use of the word 'deficit' unclear in this context, after the
description in 5.2. Seems to lack clarity in what is deficient wrt what?
>From the previous description "force line justification when the line length is
within a certain range. " which I find clear, perhaps justify-when-greater-than
might be clearer, since the description intimates that justification will only
take place when the actual length is greater than some value?
