[Bug 6996] New: [FO2.0Req] Changebars rendering style


           Summary: [FO2.0Req] Changebars rendering style
           Product: XSLFO
           Version: 2.0 Working Draft
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows XP
            Status: NEW
          Severity: enhancement
          Priority: P2
         Component: XSL-FO Requirements

In Chapter 8.1 of XSL 2.0 requirements there is stated: "Add support for adding
annotations that appear in the output, e.g. comments or text highlighting in

If annotation objects will be supported and XSL-FO processors will be capable
to insert them into PDF output, I would suggest to add new attribute to
changebar object which could switch on/off rendering changebars as line
annotation object. Changebars in form of annotations can bring some advantages.
In Acrobat all PDF annotations can be displayed as list and user can easily
jump from one to another, which is impossible in case of drawn line. Although
XSL-FO processors could produce changebars as annotation by default without
specification, maybe such attribute would be helpfull for any environments
where annotations could be potencial problem.

Jumping between annotations is not available in free Reader yet (if document
has commenting disabled), but there is Feature Request in Adobe forum:
