Re:  XSL-FO: Forcing blocks with images to start from t
Interestingly, the images flow to the next page if I remove the span="all"
attribute from my blocks. It must somehow interfere with page breaks.

I can move on for now by simply removing the spans="all", and hoping
I won't run into problems where I would really need it.

I have tried it, but it had no effect at all if span="all" was present,
neither did .within-page="always" nor ="1".

Many thanks for your input!
