hi all,

i have two questions concerning xsl-fo

first, i need to automatically generate headers and footers with
automatic sizes.
my question is, if it is possible to use 'overflow' (or some other
feature of xsl-fo) to expand region-before or region-after automatically
in order to be able to define a small size for these regions in the
page-master that will grow with the content added later. of course this
should work without overwriting the content of the body region.

my second question is more complicated. i want to generate tables wich
fill multiple pages. here it would be necessary to always have a line
that consists of column-sums in the table-footer and in the header on
the next page. i know that this question does not fit into the area
concept of xsl-fo, but still perhaps somebody has some idea how to get
that done.

many thanks
