424chapter (continued) in region-before
- May 31, 2001I'm beginning to think that the following is not possible:
In the region-before of every page is the title of the current
chapter. For pages other than the first page of a chapter,
add the text " (continued)" to the chapter title in region-before.
The problem is that fo:static-content cannot sense first versus
subsequent pages of a chapter. Fo:simple-page-master / fo:region-before
can sense this, but they allow formatting only, not content.
It almost seems that markers could be used to achieve this effect.
I could place an fo:marker containing " (continued)" right after
each chapter title, and I could retrieve that on the first page of
every chapter using <fo:retrieve-marker retrieve-position="first-
starting-within-page>, but that'd yield the opposite of the desired
effect: " (continued)" would be on the first page of each chapter
rather than on all but the first chapter of each page. I feel
like I must be missing something as it seems to be possible to get
