Hi Thomas,

Thanks for your interest in FOP. Support for fo:retrieve-table-marker is
something that I also need, unfortunately I personally am too busy ATM
to work on an implementation. If nobody else beats me to it, I might
have a chance to work on it later in the year, although nothing is

At any rate, I don’t think the work is doable in two weeks. Like
everything that touches the layout engine this is quite tricky. Also,
I studied the topic some time ago and found that the layout engine has
design issues that would greatly constrain what you can do with table
markers. Basically that would work only if the presence of the retrieved
content dos not affect the height of the table-header/footer.
Fortunately your use case would fall within that limit, IIC.
