I'm glad the picture is coming into focus.

At 07:01 PM 9/3/2003, you wrote:
Does a marker have to be written into a Header or Footer region (true or
false)? Can it be a part of the "xsl-body" region? Because that is kind
of the "fee' I am getting from the FO example of RenderX.

I do not believe there are any limitations to where you may place either an fo:marker or an fo:retrieve-marker. (What your formatter makes of them is another matter.)

In the canonical case, the marker will go into your body flow and your retrieve-marker will go in your header (or footer). This is the kind of feature for which we sometimes see creative, unexpected applications, however.

Of course, I
may be wrong as I have yet to include the marker stuff into the bigger
picture that I am trying to paint.

I think you need to try it out and see.

And if it does not have to be in the header/footer if it gets placed in
some other area then does it "OVERLAP" on other content or "PUSH" the
other content down in the body-flow region of the paginated document ?

It'll work just like any other content with respect to this stuff -- where it overlaps or pushes content down will depend on other factors such as what region it's in.

The best way to know is to try it, however.
