text-align=”justify” in future xmlroff

One of the longstanding problems for xmlroff has been that Pango didn’t do justified text. Not anymore. The blog entry by Behdad Esfahbod at http://mces.blogspot.com/2007/05/justified-text-with-pango.html shows that it has been implemented, and once it’s in a Pango release, xmlroff will be able to use it.

I found that blog entry by looking for mentions of kashida support in Pango, and it looks like that could be in the works too.
