Hi list

I want to do something like the following:

When a fo:block A in a flow appears not on page one, where it normally
goes, but on page two, fo:block B on page 1 should be made visible,
and fo:block C on page 1 should no longer be visible.

I don't know if something like the above can be achieved with
fo:multi-switch, and I don't know what FOP processors support
fo:multi-switch? Apache FOP?

Or are there other ways the above can be achieved?

I have a feeling that it is not at all possible in XSL-FO alone. It is
impossible to make use of information that is first available when the
formatting has taken place? Some trick is probably necessary?

I need a little help and some hints before I start experimenting for real.
