I have a little problem with using the <fo:float>

In your example aboit <fo:float> on 
http://xep.xattic.com/xep/testsuite/usecases/dropcap.pdf you see the F in 
big read at the left of the text,
the way you would like to have.

When using the same code  (see below) in Render.Net 3.8 the big F will be 
placed below the text,
so you will see the big red F with overlaying text "loats..."
<fo:block margin="0pt" padding="6pt">
        <fo:float float="start">
                <fo:block margin="0pt" color="red"
                depth="0pt" font-size="62pt"
                height="40pt" font-weight="bold" font-family="Courier">F
loats dimensions derived from its content width/height...

Both blocks starts at the same position.
In the example you see the big red F start at position 0 and the 
"loads..." follows on position 20 (f.e.)
Any suggestion how to make it look like the examples in 

Kind regards,
