[xsl] A few problems with XSL:FO

I have a few problems with my FO output and I hope somebody can help me!

My first problem are fo:markers, which I use to display subtotals in pages. The
calculation is correct but a different formatting is not possible!

Here is the output sample of one fo:marker:

<fo:table-cell display-align="before" border-left-style="solid"
border-left-color="#000000" border-left-width="1px" padding-top="2px"
padding-bottom="2px" padding-left="2px" padding-right="2px">
    <fo:marker marker-class-name="1">4</fo:marker>
  <fo:block font-family="sans-serif" font-size="10pt">1</fo:block>

The fo:marker is embedded into a table and therefore into an fo:table-cell. The
first block contains the marker, the second one the content of the table-cell.

Here is the ouput sample of the fo:retrieve-marker:

<fo:table-cell text-align="center" background-color="#CCCCCC"
border-top-style="solid" border-top-color="#000000" border-top-width="1px"
border-bottom-style="solid" border-bottom-color="#000000"
border-bottom-width="1px" border-left-style="solid" border-left-color="#000000"
border-left-width="1px" border-right-style="solid" border-right-color="#000000"
border-right-width="1px" padding-top="10px" padding-bottom="10px">
  <fo:block font-family="sans-serif" font-size="16pt" font-weight="bold">
    <fo:inline font-family="sans-serif" font-size="20pt"
      <fo:retrieve-marker retrieve-position="last-starting-within-page" 
         retrieve-boundary="page" retrieve-class-name="1"/>
    </fo:inline> Report Test - Header!

The retrieve-marker is embedded into an inline element to make different
formatting possible. But the problem is, that the retrieved content of the
marker doesn't inherit any of the given properties. Is there an error in my
sylesheet or is there no possibility to make a different formatting?

Another problem are links in my resulting PDF document. I have a page with a
table with a header and footer. If the footer contains any formatting area and
there is a link in the body of the table, the active area of the link (the area
where the mouse changes and the hover-area is located) is shifted down and not
consistent with the object area, which should represent the link. I found that
the formatting areas of the footer are the problem --> if there is no content in
the footer or there is no footer, the link-area is correct, otherwise there is
this shift. I hope my description was clear (I am from Austria ;)).

I would like to know if there is any possibility to display the total ammount of
pages transformed?

A last question: I need a WordML reference and tutorials. Does anybody know
links or pages where I can find some good stuff?
