Just to clarify: the mechanism Ken described will give you your heading on every page, until a new heading replaces it (on every page).

It wasn't clear to me from your original description whether you wanted your h2 to appear on every page, or only on the first page of the section, occupying a reserved space.

Come to think of it, I wonder if you couldn't fake this by placing an empty marker directly after each marker generated for an h2. I can think of a few people who could speak to this better (including Ken).

Yet at the same time (if this is the case), it seems that the "correct" solution would be to use a new page sequence for every section, with a special geometry on the first page. Unfortunately, in your case this would seem to present an overlap problem, since your sections do not (do they?) have natural wrappers in the source document, which would map to page-sequence elements in the FO. Yet at the same time, XSLT 2.0 offers solutions to this.

If you want your heading to appear on every page until a new header replaces it, that's what FO markers are for.

Ken, I've worked with<fo:static-content> before but not with markers. So could you provide me some code examples on how this works.
