RE:  XSLFO block-container and how to flow text around
Thanks Ken,

There will be no user-specified footnotes, lucky there. I'll give your
suggestion a try and get back with the results.

No such properties exist.  The block-containers are independent of the flow
and so the flow has no knowledge of them.

I recommend you start your first page flow with an empty block and footnote
that has what you want at the bottom of the first page.  This will not work,
though, if you have user-specified footnotes, as it will flow above the ones
that follow on the first page.

I hope this helps.
