  Thanks for your detailed answer, Ken.  Unfortunately, when I
try the following:

    <fo:block space-before="5pt" start-indent="5pt"
              border="solid 0.5pt">
       Bla bla...

I get the opposite result: the border is moved to the inside of
the block.  Thanks to Vasu, I found the following that solves my

    <fo:block padding-top="5pt" border="solid 0.5pt">
       <fo:inline padding-left="5pt">Bla bla...</fo:inline>

  With this, the border around the block is still aligned with
borders around tables, and the text is 5pt away from the border.
I am not sure this is the right way to go, but it seems clean

  I use FOP 0.95, not sure this has something to do...
