Re:  Condition "last" and force-page-count

I simply don't understand how the
"fo:repeatable-page-master-alternatives" works? Is it the order of the
children that makes it work?

I don't understand how my "last" odd page can escape being degraded to
being one on the "rest" when then blank page is added to get the even
