not sure what u want to do when its going to go over 1 line... but u
can check for that if you use a monospace font-family
(font-family="monospace")on that fo:block since all characters are the
so you make the pdf, count up how many chars (including spaces etc)
fit in one line.
then set up a condition in your xsl, pretend only 200 chars fit in 1 line.
<xsl:variable name="theNodesTextValue" select="thisNode/text()"/>
<xsl:when test="string-length($theNodesTextValue) > $maxLength">
//make the font size on this row smaller? or only output 1st 200
letters? not sure what consistancy you want.
//write out the row
