Cannot render info. with tables using XSL-FO

My XML file.

<Employee>
      <Name>Sun</Name>
      <Name>Moon</Name>
      <Name>Earth</Name>
</Employee>





Here is my xsl file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet version="1.0"
  xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
  xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
 
 <xsl:template match="/">
 
  <fo:root xmlns:fo="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Format">
 
   <fo:layout-master-set>
     <fo:simple-page-master master-name="simple"
                   page-height="29.7cm"
                   page-width="21cm"
                   margin-top="1cm"
                   margin-bottom="2cm"
                   margin-left="2.5cm"
                   margin-right="2.5cm">
       <fo:region-body margin-top="3cm"/>
       <fo:region-before extent="3cm"/>
       <fo:region-after extent="1.5cm"/>
     </fo:simple-page-master>
   </fo:layout-master-set>
 
 
   <fo:page-sequence master-reference="simple">
         <fo:flow flow-name="xsl-region-body">
      <fo:table-and-caption>
      <fo:table>
      <fo:table-body>
           <xsl:for-each select="Employee/Name">
            <fo:table-row>
              <fo:table-cell>
                  <fo:block> <xsl:value-of select="."/> </fo:block>
              </fo:table-cell>
            </fo:table-row>
         </xsl:for-each>
      </fo:table-body>
      </fo:table>
      </fo:table-and-caption>
           </fo:flow>
   </fo:page-sequence>

  </fo:root>
 
 </xsl:template>
 
</xsl:stylesheet>



I Run this command from command prompt.


C:\XSL-FOP\fop-0.20.5>fop -xml c:\xmltopdf\r.xml -xsl c:\xmltopdf\r.xsl -pdf c:\
xmltopdf\r.pdf
[INFO] Using org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser as SAX2 Parser

[INFO] Using org.apache.xerces.parsers.SAXParser as SAX2 Parser

Just check to see if all the mandatory elements are there inside fo:table (I'm not sure if fo:table-column is mandatory, try it once). Sometimes this happens when you have an empty cell in your table. You can put an empty fo:inline inside the fo:block like this,

<fo:table-cell>
     <fo:block> <xsl:value-of select="."/> <fo:inline></fo:inline></fo:block>
</fo:table-cell>

Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Sathish

this one will work:

fo:table-and-caption is supported, but it only seems to work when you have fixed-style
