Ah, it was not coincidence. Thanks, anyway, for explaining that old point (which I had not solved in the meanwhile). in case people haven't looked at Paul's file, he is saying that I can do `fillers' like Introduction ................................. 63 with something like this: <fo:block> <fo:inline-sequence inhibit-line-breaks="true">Introduction <fo:inline-rule rule-style="dotted" rule-thickness="2pt"/> 63</fo:inline-sequence> </fo:block> (back to running headers). I think you and James have been over this in the meanwhile, so just to confirm > You will prepare the XML testcase and the expected > result of rendering in PDF format using the existing I could do this, obviously, using an XSLT spec which outputs LaTeX, but since we all agree its `simply' a flaw in XSL FO, I am not sure it would help much. > day-to-day formatter ( also I'm sure that you'l use some > package around the core formatter.

I cannot actually think of a formatter I have used that does not handle it. But then most of my typesetting has been done with TeX. for what its worth, I have typeset maybe 20 serious books for myself and other people, and I cannot think of one which did not have running heads which depended on the section heading, which might change anywhere on the page. But then I cannot think of one which did not have several dozen tables, either :-} Sebastian XSL-List info and archive: http://www.mulberrytech.com/xsl/xsl-list
