Re: [XSL-FO] dynamic headers
- I think what Joerg means is what are often called "running headers".
If the header is the same through a page-sequence, it's easy enough; the
harder case is where in a single page sequence, the header changes (maybe
it indicates what section you're in at the bottom of the page, without
starting a new page-sequence for each section). I can't give you details,
but XSL-FO uses fo:marker and fo:retrieve-marker (see the spec, 6.11.3) to
do this. It's a bit complex, but then, the problem is complex.
So no, I can't give an "easy example" either. I'd check the usual suspects:
RenderX's demos, etc. (I think they implement this don't they?)

"Markers"). Moreover, the style for PDF version of the tutorial itself
contains running headers - chapter names are repeated in the header.
There is also a lengthy test for markers in the test suite
(www.renderx.com/testcases.html); they are also used in our style
for W3C documents (www.renderx.com/xmlspec.html).
The tutorial, with source code and stylesheets, is bundled with XEP's
eval version, so Joerg has probably seen it. I therefore suspect he needs
something more complex...
