      I answered this question two days ago on www-xsl-fo@... and it is copied
      below. The solution supplied has been tested with Antenna House and
      appears to give you exactly what you are asking for.

      You can put the second block into a footnote and introduce an empty block
      after your first block with an empty footnote citation inline and your
      second block into the footnote body.

      Remember (and I sound like a broken record here) ... don't get hung up on
      the names of the constructs. These are layout constructs you can use to
      achieve the desired layout regardless of the source of the information
      being laid out. Even though you aren't working with footnotes, your
      comment "should reside always on the bottom of the page" should bring to
      mind that the footnote construct is a construct that performs this
      particular kind of layout.

      Of course the caveat in this case is that if you also have footnotes then I
      think you are out of luck.

      I hope this helps.
