What is a `day to day formatter'? Many of us here use TeX every day. This has a reasonably expressive mark system that allows running heads to have text based on the first or last mark on the page (or the last mark on an earlier page). Thus the kind of dictionary example that Sebastian mentioned are easy to implement. A slightly easier example is the kind of head that James mentioned that changes if a section starts mid page. That is the default latex behaviour for the \section command. David XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
