Hi Brandon.
Thank you for help me.

I tested your code.

And I wrote a similar code.

 (element para
       (if (string=? "" (data (current-node)))   ;;IF I HAVE <para></para>
             (make simple-page-sequence
             (make paragraph
             break-before: 'page
               (literal " ")))			 ;;THE QUESTION IS HERE
           (make paragraph	                 ;;ELSE
               first-line-start-indent: 1cm

If I use (literal " ") or (literal ""), and I have <para></para>
   the conditional don't work.

If I use (literal "."), "." or another caracter, and I have <para></para>
the conditional work very well, and the dsssl insert a page who have only
a caractere inside "".

If I can insert (literal " "), I can insert a
blank page in my document.
But I think it's not possible.

Maybe, if inside " ", I insert a hidden caracter, or I represent a hidden
caracter, I will can insert a blank page in my document.

Well, no problems, it's only curiosity.
: )

Thank you again.
