The fo:inline element has no particular effect on the layout of the page. Rather it’s an element on which you can hang formatting attributes such as font-style or color for application to the inline’s contents.
The fo:inline formatting object is a container that groups inline objects together. It cannot contain block-level elements. For example, you can use fo:inline elements to add style to various parts of the footer, like this:
<fo:static-content flow-name=”xsl-region-after”>

<fo:block font-weight=”bold” font-size=”10pt” font-family=”Arial, Helvetica, sans”>

<fo:inline font-style=”italic” text-align=”start”> The XML Bible

</fo:inline> <fo:inline text-align=”centered”> Page <fo:page-number/>


<fo:inline text-align=”right”> Chapter 19: XSL Formatting Objects </fo:inline>

</fo:block> </fo:static-content>
