Dear all,

Not sure if this is the correct list to write to (if it is incorrect please
accept my apologies) but am having some difficulty with an XSL FO document.

Briefly my current set up involves formatting my initial data into my own ML
and then transforming into the fo namespace so I can transform to a pdf
using FOP.  My problem specifically is that I am generating header and
footer content (in the static-content tags) from the intermediary ML which
is only showing on the first page.

I have narrowed this problem down to 2 possible causes:

1) fo:static-content is only able to handle simple content hardcoded in the
xsl and not dynamically generated content from my ML language(which was not
my understanding of the xsl specification - I thought static-content
referred to content which appears on every page)

2) I am not correctly defining the page sequence and page templates
correctly.

My code is attached.

Any suggestins of how to solve this problem or of a relevant developers
forum would be greatly appreciated

Many Thanks

PS The XSL may be a little ragged as this is my first attempt at writing a
XSLT/XSLFO stylesheet.
