Hi again,

If the there isn't enough space for the <fo:footnote-body> on the bottom of the last page of a document, is XSL-FO supposed to create a new page for it? I'm currently using FOP, version 0.20.1.

For some reports, the disclaimer isn't appearing as the number of records returned goes to the bottom of the page and there isn't sufficient space for the <fo:block> within the <fo:footnote-body>.

Any ideas? Thanks,
Joshua
