How to detect the page break in a xsl for-each?

This is not possible. There is no dependency on XSLT by XSL-FO and the XSLT process is long complete before XSL-FO even begins. There is no feedback loop, so the stylesheet writer must write the stylesheet full of contingencies on which the layout can depend.

or how to summarize up to a page break ?

Typically this is done with an extended footer, summarizing at each and every line, putting the summary values into markers, then retrieving the last marker found on each page into the footer, thus giving the appearance of a running total.

I remember having read, that it's not possible to detect a page-break ...but I'm not sure anymore.

I hope this helps.
