      Does anyone know of a way to select data from one region of a page
      and use it in another region on that same page? For instance, if someone
      were formatting a dictionary and wanted to put the first and last words on
      the page in a header on that page, how would that be done? The XML
      certainly
      doesn't know what the first/last words will be on a formatted page, so they
      can't
      be marked up in the original document. It's really not known until after
      the
      region-body has been rendered. Depending on how a page is formatted the
      last word might be 'anatomy' or the last word may be 'apple', or something
      else.
      Is there any way using Apache FOP to select data from a page and use it in
      a header on that same page?

      Thanks.
