There is a bug in the current evaluation version of XEP
that causes a float placed on the last page to disappear.
The bug is fixed in the internally available version and
the next public release will not have this problem.
An update will also be delivered within few days to
all our commercial customers licensed XEP 2.*.

> <fo:block text-align="center"
