      Yes, that's what I see in the OASIS specification.

      Yes, something along the lines of text-align="{@char}" based on where
      you have this in your stylesheet.

      However, looking at the current XEP Reference of the implementation
      of formatting objects and their properties, this documentation
      explicitly states that a <string> value for text-align= is not implemented:


      So I don't think you are going to have any luck even if you do make
      your change to the stylesheet.

      In your earlier message you did not mention which formatter you were
      using ... the example I gave you works with Antenna House ... had you
      mentioned you were using XEP then a review of the implementation
      documentation would have answered this earlier.

      I hope this helps, though it seems it may not be what you were looking for.
