If you are using FOP .95 and above, you will need to use markers for your
"Table Continued". A marker needs to be placed in the table header:

 <fo:marker marker-class-name="table-cont">&#160;</fo:marker>

And a retrieve marker needs to go into your xsl-region-before(header).

<fo:retrieve-marker retrieve-class-name="table-cont"
retrieve-position="first-including-carryover" retrieve-boundary="page"/>

I do consulting for this for a living. You need more detailed help, contact me
off list. I have this feature in all my FO- books
