Thank you for the help. Indeed, Adding the first blank marker is what I needed to get the desired output.

One small problem however, with the solution. You suggest separating the table title from the continued text. I don't see how this is possible. The table title is in fo:table-caption. fo-retrieve-table-marker is not valid there. It has to be part of fo-table-header. Also, since I did not include my XSL, the table number is generated from a counter. The DTD I'm working with requires table/title and the title has to go into the table-caption. It seems I have to replicate the title in the marker to get it into the fo:table-header.
