I'm afraid not, I've got approx 70 odd nodes of the same name that
contain varying amounts of information, and in different circumstances,
different nodes are pulled in from the db, etc.

So I have to build something generic that 'knows' to break if it is
approaching the bottom of a page.  Essentially, I want to state a rule
that says 'if this fo:block cannot be entirely displayed by the end of
this page, break and start on a new page'...

I assumed that this might be a common requirement, perhaps with
paragraphs that you didn't want to split up.

E.g.

Always do this..

<page>
<para></para><!-- template match on para -->
<para></para>
<para></para>
</page>

<page>
<para></para>
<para></para>
<para></para>
</page>

But disallow this under any circumstances...

<page>
<para></para>
<para></para>
<para>......
</page>

<page>
.......</para>
<para></para>
<para></para>
</page>


At the end of the day, I'm pleased with the results I've got so far, I'm
just being a bit of a perfectionist and it feels like it should be an
easy one to crack..


cheers


Andy

Can't you tell from the context in the source XML
if its a 'breakable' point? Then add the variant strength?
