Thanks this confirms what I thought might be going on, now the easier said
than doen task of trying to figure out why there is something empty on the
page and also convincing the customer that all balnk pages may not get the
proper text applied.
In the case of my working sample, the page is being forced by a break page

I have a requirement to place a note "This page intentionally blank" on any
blank page. I've built a simple test case that forces an extra page and can
get that to work as expected, but when I try to apply it to my real
stylesheet and document, I get a blank page but no message.
The concept of "blankness" is only true for pages that are forced blank and
have no content whatsoever (not even an empty block) on the page.
Is the blank page model only triggered by specific circumstances and not
other situations that cause a blank page?
It is not triggered by a page with content whose content does not turn on
dots on the page.
I know its hard to answer the question without seeing the code, but my
problem is the simple test code I wrote works, but the longer real world
code is not working.
It would seem to me that the page you are seeing without any dots turned on
is not a blank page from an XSL-FO perspective in that it probably has at
least an empty block on it. If you can determine what is triggering the
empty content on the page (which makes the page not blank), that may solve
I hope this helps.
