"inline" with Mixed Content
This section provides a tutorial example showing a 'inline' with mixed content of text and child block-level formatting objects. Text and will be processed normally. But the child block will be processed on a separate new line by itself.
Normal, the content of an "inline" formatting object is a piece of text. But you can also put other formatting objects as part of the content of an "inline" formatting object.
If the content of an "inline" formatting object is a mixture of text, inline-level formatting objects and block-level formatting objects, the final inline area will be generated according to these rules:
Here is my tutorial example, inline-with-Mixed-Content.fo, that has an "inline" element with mixed content: text and blocks:

Early one morning they woke up and their mother said, "<fo:inline font-style="italic" color="#ff22ff">you're too big for this house and its time you left home.</fo:inline>" </fo:block> </fo:flow> </fo:page-sequence> </fo:root>
If you process this example XSL-FO document with RenderX XEP tool to a PDF file, you should see a page displaying a strikethrough text of "three little pigs". But "little" is on a line by itself, because it is specified as a "block":
