Yes, you do not realize that the default style for the border is "none".

You might want to use border-after-style="solid" or 
border-after-style="dotted" or some other style for your border.  You will 
not need to specify the widths, and BTW your width specifications need to 
be lengths and not simple numbers.

This is a FAQ.  You will need two simple page masters, one with the desired 
text and one without, and then create a page sequence using the one with 
the text first and repeating the one without the text after.

This depends on how you trigger the page.  You will need a separate simple 
page master with the landscape-oriented dimensions.  If you know in advance 
which page you need in landscape, then create a page sequence with the new 
simple page master in the desired order.

If you do not know in advance which page you need in landscape, that is it 
might be dependent on the XML source, then you need a two-step process.  I 
have published a publicly-available stylesheet for precisely this 
requirement, and it is called the "Page Sequence Master Interleave (PSMI)" 
resource, and it is downloaded from the "Free resources" section of our web 
site indicated below.

I hope this helps.
